Roxboro Community School (RCS) has been working to provide multiple educational opportunities to students.

On Tuesday, March 20, representatives from Piedmont Community College (PCC) held a meeting in the RCS multipurpose room to share information about its Career and College Promise Program (CCP).

This program allows students to earn college credits while still in high school and is wonderful, according to high school guidance counselor LaTonya Ragland.

“For many students, the road to success may require a two or four-year degree, a certificate or diploma,” Ragland said. “Through CCP, students have the opportunity to pursue these options, tuition free, while they are in high school, allowing them to get a jumpstart on their workplace and college preparation.”

In addition to this meeting, PCC representative Leia Rollins is on campus every Tuesday to assist junior and senior students who are interested in or already enrolled in courses at the college.

Students are also encouraged to utilize the online Virtual Public School, as registration for classes this spring, summer, and fall, will begin Thursday, March 29.
