Fort Wayne Community Schools announced a new program for middle and high school students to help prepare them for life after high school. Seventh and eighth grade students as well as high school students are invited to participate in a series of courses offered on four consecutive Saturdays beginning October 22nd.
“This is an opportunity for students to come together and start thinking about what they want to do with their lives,” said Shenita Piper, K-12 College and Career Readiness Manager. “At the middle school level, we want students to start thinking about their future so they can make the right choices when they select high school courses. For high school students, we will help them navigate the college application, scholarship and financial aid process, which can be intimidating to students and parents.”
Classes will be held 9 a.m. to noon for high school students and 1 to 3 p.m. for middle school students. All classes will be at the FWCS Family & Community Engagement Center. For more information or to sign up, students are asked to contact the K-12 College and Career Readiness Office at 260 467-7250.
