Guam - It may be summertime, but class is in session for dozens of middle and high school students wanting to get a leg up on their education. 62 students are attending the federally-funded College Access Challenge Grant Program that helps enhance skills in math, English, computer education, and college preparation.
GCC president Mary Okada told KUAM News, "There is a Project Aim program, which is for first generation college students - that means mom and dad didn't go to college and so these students have the opportunity to attend GCC to see what college is all about. We offer opportunities such as financial aid, assistance in the tutoring component for math and English and getting ready to take the placement test."
The other two programs include the College Access Program for middle and high school students and the Citi Foundation, for those who completed high school. The Guam Community College is also helping high school graduates under the federally-funded TRIO Project Aim Summer Bridge Program.
