Harvard University Club – Early College Awareness Day


Alamance-Burlington School System is proud to partner with The Harvard University Club, Impact Alamance, and Alamance Achieves to present Early College Awareness Day. The event is to encourage students in grades 5-8 along with their families to begin the discussion on the benefits of a college education and how to start drawing a roadmap to get there. Dynamic speakers, current college students, recent graduates, and a number of area college representatives will communicate with attendees to explore what college is like and what it takes to be successful. The Harvard University Club and ABSS strive to inspire all students to prepare for college.  Please join the Harvard University Club for Early College Awareness Day at Cumming High School Saturday morning April 13 from 8:30 to 11:45.
