Jefferson College is one of only 15 institutions across the nation recently granted accreditation from the National Alliance of Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships (NACEP) in connection with offering quality concurrent enrollment programs for high school students.
The College is now among 98 institutions from coast to coast who have been awarded NACEP accreditation since the organization’s establishment in 1999.
As the school year comes to a close and summer approaches, Jefferson College is offering a variety of Red Cross certified swimming lessons for children of all ages, beginning as early as six months old.
Coordinated through the College’s Continuing Education Department, the summer swim program is designed to promote water safety, knowledge, aquatic adjustment, and increased swimming readiness and skills. All lessons are taught by certified Red Cross instructors in the Olympic-sized indoor pool/natatorium on the Jefferson College Hillsboro campus.
With an opportunity for beginning Jefferson College students to improve their reading, writing and math placement test scores, the College will offer an intensive seven-week program called JASSI (Jeffco Aspiring Student Scholar Institute) this summer.
By improving COMPASS placement scores, participants can decrease developmental education courses that will save them time and money toward their college career path.
