College & Career Ready
WHAT IS COLLEGE- AND CAREER- READY?
“I ask every American to commit to at least one year or more of higher education or career training.
This can be community college or a four-year school; vocational training or an apprenticeship.
But whatever the training may be, every American will need to get more
than a high school diploma.”
President Obama, Address to Joint Session of Congress, February 24, 2009
American River College hosted a Business and Computer Science High School Day on Friday, April 8th.
The students were welcomed in a speech by the college's President, Thomas Greene.
They later attended classes taught by college professors and participated in academic activities. This event provided specific information about college, and the study of Business and Computer Information Programs.
