MCC offers online summer classes for middle and high schoolers

 

Did you know your middle and high school children can start earning credits this summer at Montcalm Community College?

Are you looking for opportunities for them to continue their education this summer? If so, MCC is offering a few exciting online summer course options they can take, risk free. And, upon successful completion, there is an option to earn real college credit, giving them a jump start on their college education! 

This summer’s offerings include:  

Kick off to College 

Enjoy an introduction to college and life. This is often the first class students take in college. Students explore and experience their own role in creating their own success, whether it is in college or life in general. They will be exposed to tools, guidelines, principles, and insights that aid them towards success while developing plans to reach their own goals. While this class relates to the college environment, the course emphasizes the need to grow and develop beyond the college experience as well. The cost for this noncredit course is $25. If successful, with paid MCC credit tuition, this course can be transferred to GNST 100 for full college credit.  While this class may be appropriate for middle school and high school aged students, it is recommended high schoolers.  

Find Your Future 

Undecided about your future and your career path?  It is becoming more and more important to look at your options early. This course is designed to assist the student in developing life-planning skills to make informed career choices. The course focuses on self-awareness, decision-making strategies, value clarification, academic planning, career exploration, and interest inventory assessments. The cost for this noncredit course is $25. If successful, with paid MCC credit tuition, this course can be transferred to GNST 110 for full college credit.  This class is for middle school and high school aged students.   

Explore Health Careers 

Are you interested in a career in the health field but not really sure what is out there?  This course provides the student with an overview of nursing and other health professions. The cost for this noncredit course is $25.  If successful, with paid MCC credit tuition, this course can be transferred to full college elective credit. This class is for middle school and high school aged students.  

Youth Literature 

This is a survey of literature that investigates the multiple genres of contemporary young adult literature created for middle and high school age groups (ages 11 to 18). Students will read a diverse range of young adult texts written by distinguished authors and will discuss them from the perspectives of genre, theme, representations of adolescence and adulthood, and approaches to interpretation. Further study will include methods, selection processes, criticism, applications, and writing. The cost for this noncredit course is $25. If successful, with paid MCC credit tuition, this course can be transferred to ENGL 236 for full college credit.  This class is for middle school and high school ages who can read many 250+ page books at a 5th-grade reading level.
