Homeschool Families Invited to GCC Medina Campus

Informational Session Set for May 13, 2019

Batavia, New York - Genesee Community College invites homeschooled students and their parents to the Medina Campus Center on Monday, May 13, 2019 from 6 – 8 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, and a light supper will also be served!   

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 evening will include information about how GCC coursework helps homeschooled students earn the New York State High School Equivalency Diploma. Scholarship and financial aid information will also be available. All interested participants are asked to RSVP their attendance no later than May 8, 2019.

“Each year this event is extremely successful so the Medina Campus Center is thrilled to continue our efforts to provide area homeschool families with the opportunity to learn about everything GCC has to offer at our Orleans County Campus Centers,” Jim Simon, associate dean of the Orleans County Campus Centers said. “There are so many ways GCC can serve the interests and needs of homeschooled students and their families - from our small class sizes and excellent instructors to the variety of courses in many different subjects offered both on campus as well as online.”

Families will have the opportunity to learn about Genesee Promise Plus Summer Scholarship program, which provides ACE students with one or two classes tuition-free at any of GCC’s seven campus locations or online. More than 100 courses are being offered this summer. GCC has three Summer Sessions: The full summer session runs for ten weeks starting May 28 through August 10; Session I runs May 28 - June 29; and Session II runs July 8 - August 10.
