Community Engagement and the GCC Admission team welcome special visits to campus by youth groups, clubs, organizations and schools to learn more about what we offer and to help prepare students for their college careers. If you’re interested in bringing a group to campus, contact Judy Raper, Associate Dean for Community Engagement, at email@example.com.
BEACON students spend their mornings at GHS participating in core academic subjects with GHS teachers and spend their afternoons at GCC for BEACON programming that includes the following components:
- Academic Coaching and Credit Recovery: Students spend an hour each day on completing school assignments, studying for tests and when needed, working to receive credits for previous classes that they have failed
- Service Learning: Students work in small groups to design and lead community service projects aimed at addressing social challenges about which they are passionate
- Entrepreneurship: BEACON students develop an entrepreneurship mindset through creating and piloting their own business ideas and developing key real-world skills
GCC is exploring ways to grow the program with an eventual goal of offering the program to every high school in Franklin County. To learn more about BEACON, contact Max Fripp, firstname.lastname@example.org.
