Home-schoolers and their parents are invited to the Home School Open House at Pellissippi State Community College March 1.
At the free event, college staff members address the specific needs and questions posed by home-schooling families. Participants have a chance to tour the campus and meet with faculty. They also learn about the more than 100 academic options available at the college, as well as how to apply for financial aid and scholarships.
In addition, students and parents have an opportunity to find out about dual enrollment—a program that allows high school juniors and seniors to earn high school credit and college credit at the same time. Students may be eligible for a dual enrollment grant that allows them to take a college course for as little as $10 plus the cost of a textbook.
“Each year we have about 40-50 home-schooled students who are participating in classes through the Dual Enrollment program,” said Leigh Anne Touzeau, assistant vice president of Enrollment Services at Pellissippi State.
The event takes place 6-7:30 p.m. in the Goins Building Auditorium at the Pellissippi Campus, 10915 Hardin Valley Road.
Reservations should be made by Feb. 28 by contacting Priscilla Gitschlag, Enrollment Services, at (865) 539-7258 or email@example.com.
