High School Students Offered College Experiences

SCC summer camps (2)

Southeastern Community College has summer programs and experiences planned for high school students beginning June 26. The college is partnering with Columbus County Schools to further education for the kids while offering them the chance to learn in a fun environment.   

The summer camps are an excellent opportunity for students to gain hands-on industry skills in career technical fields, public safety, and healthcare. The programs will allow them to explore the many career opportunities in Columbus County while earning industry-recognized credentials and college credits. The camps will cover fields of study like agriculture, automotive, construction, engineering, fire academy, nurse aide, and welding.  

The summer experiences are for students interested in transferring to a university. Students will try college life with 5-week accelerated classes that allow them to earn college credit and get a head start on their future career goals.  

Those enrolled will take field trips to North Carolina college and university campuses to learn more about the programs offered at each institution and to learn how their SCC college classes will transfer into their program of choice. Classes are hybrid with both online and in-person instruction time, so students can still enjoy their summer while being productive. Fields for summer experiences include teacher preparation, early childhood education, and university transfer pathway. 

Those interested in signing up for camps or experiences can register online at  https://southeasterncc-register.fundfive.com/camp/search. New students can contact Natalie Freeman at 910.788.6285, or Laura Faulk at 910.788.6297. Columbus Career and College Academy students should sign up with Crystal Matthis at her office or by calling 910.788.6354.
