Middle School students with a passion for learning can explore careers and enjoy activities that bring to life math, reading and science during Henderson Community College s Summer Enrichment Program.

The program takes place June 11-15 on the HCC campus. Classes are held from 8:30 a.m. to noon. Lunch and transportation to and from HCC are provided daily.

The Summer Enrichment Program is designed as a one-week non-residential program for middle and junior high school minority students from Henderson and Union Counties, said Bill Dixon, HCC Director of Cultural Diversity. Students are offered enrichment opportunities in math, reading, science, college preparations, learning styles, career explorations and personal/social developments. The program prepares minority students to be successful in high school and college level work and to persist to high school and college graduation.

The Summer Enrichment Program provides academic enrichment activities for minority students in grades 6-8, encouraging them to stay in school and enter college. The program also encourages students to stay in school and enter college, and makes them aware of the value of college. The program also strives to help prepare students to be successful in college level work and persist to college graduation.
