HOUSTON - May 23, 2012 - Spring ISD students who are currently enrolled in ninth grade are invited to attend a free one-day summer boot camp hosted by the Lone Star College-North Harris College Awareness, Readiness and Education (CARE) Team. Three boot camps will be held from 7:45 a.m. until noon on June 26, July 25 and Aug. 2 at the Lone Star College-North Harris Student Services Building, 2700 W.W. Thorne, Houston.
Participants will attend reading, writing, and math mini-courses taught by LSC-North Harris faculty that will help prepare the students for the Compass college-level placement test, which all 10th-grade students will take in 2012-13. In addition, participants will have the opportunity to meet current college students and hear their perspective on college. The last session of the day will be a “College 101” information session with the CARE advisers.
Interested students may contact the college and career counselor at their high school campus for more details and registration information or open the CARE Boot Camp Registration packet online.
