Homeschool Families Invited to GCC Albion Campus

Informational Session Set for March 4, 2014

Batavia, NY- Genesee Community College invites homeschooled students and their parents to the Albion Campus Center on Tuesday, March 4, 2014 at 7 p.m. to learn about all GCC offers for students who are homeschooled. Key college staff members who work with homeschool students will be on hand to educate families 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. GCC Admissions Director Tanya Lane Martin will also be present to educate and answer any admissions questions families may have.

The evening 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.

“This is a great opportunity for families to learn more about everything we can offer homeschooled students at our Orleans County Campus Centers,” said Associate Dean Jim Simon, who oversees GCC Campus Centers in Albion and Medina. “We offer a lot of things that I think homeschool families will find very appealing. These include small class sizes and excellent instructors with a low teacher to student ratio. We also offer classes in many different subjects that will satisfy a wide variety of interests.”

The Albion Campus Center is located at 456 West Ave., Albion, NY 14411. For more information contact the Albion Campus Center at (585) 589-4936.

Genesee Community College enrolls approximately 7,000 students at its main campus in Batavia and six Campus Centers in Albion, Medina, Arcade, Warsaw, Lima and Dansville. GCC also offers residential living adjacent to the Batavia campus in apartment style suites at College Village.
