Savannah Tech to host virtual info sessions for homeschool families
SAVANNAH, Ga. – Savannah Technical College will offer two virtual information sessions for homeschool families on September 24.
The sessions will include information about general education and technical education (occupational) options for students through dual enrollment and after high school graduation. Parents will learn how Savannah Tech provides a complement to the homeschool foundation for students while in high school and beyond.
STC Vice President for Economic Development Dr. Brent Stubbs will host the session accompanied by STC’s Dual Enrollment Coordinator Shatealy Johnson. Stubbs was homeschooled for eight years. He and his wife have homeschooled their children for the past 11 years.
“The opportunity at Savannah Technical College for homeschoolers is tremendous,” said Stubbs. “Our general education courses are both rigorous and taught by caring faculty. Our technical education options give homeschool families the confidence that their children can enter the world self-sufficient. We have a safe campus with a commuter population of serious students looking to improve their lives. That energy is contagious!”
Virtual information sessions will be held at 11 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. on September 24. Advance registration is requested by Sept. 22 with this link https://tinyurl.com/STCHome2020.
Dual Enrollment allows qualified high school students to maximize their education and career training by taking courses that earn college and high school credit at the same time. Students may choose to enroll fully into a degree, diploma, or technical certificate of credit (TCC) program, or they may choose to just take a few courses. Courses are taught on college campuses, online and hybrid (a blend of online and in-person classes).
Starting in 10th grade, students are eligible to take occupational or CTAE courses through Dual Enrollment funding. Junior and senior level (11th and 12th grade) students are eligible to take core/general education, as well as occupational courses. Financial Aid is available for students who meet the requirements.
Savannah Tech offers 28 degree level core/general education classes (math, science, English, history, etc.) that transfer to any University System of Georgia (USG) or Technical College System of Georgia college or university plus many other colleges/universities outside of the state of Georgia.
