Homeschool Families Invited to GCC Lima Campus Center

Informational Session Set for May 23, 2018

Batavia, New York - Genesee Community College invites homeschooled students and their parents to the Lima Campus Center on Wednesday, May 23, 2018 from 4 - 6 p.m. to learn about GCC’s exciting opportunities for students who are homeschooled. Key college staff members who work with this student population will be available to educate family members and answer questions. 

Homeschooled students have extensive opportunities to advance their education through GCC. Classes are offered in many subject areas and students under age 18 may take approved ACE (Accelerated College Enrollment) courses at a reduced tuition rate. ACE Program Specialist Dan Snyder, who works with many homeschooled students currently enrolled at GCC, will be at the session to provide information.

The afternoon event will include information about how GCC coursework can help homeschooled students earn the New York State High School Equivalency Diploma. Scholarship and financial aid information will also be available. Participants will also enjoy the opportunity to have refreshments at the Lima Campus Center.

“Homeschooled students appreciate the many different courses and subject areas, but where classes are small and there is consistently excellent instruction with a low student to teacher ratio,” Associate Dean Amy Churchfield, who oversees GCC Campus Centers in Lima and Dansville said. “GCC is a perfect pathway for homeschool families to transition from their at-home learning environment to college-level curriculum that is rigorous, but also friendly and offers plenty of hands-on learning.”

Families will also have the opportunity to learn about Genesee Promise Plus Summer Scholarship program, which provides ACE students with one or two classes tuition-free to any of GCC seven campus locations or online. More than 140 courses are being offered this summer. GCC has three Summer Sessions: The full Summer session runs for ten weeks starting May 29 – August 11; Session I runs May 29 – June 30; and Session II runs July 9 - August 11.

The Lima Campus Center is located at 7285 Gale Road (Route 15A and Gale Road intersection), NY 14485. For more information contact the Lima Campus Center at (585) 582-1226.
