A Day in the Life of a College Student

We want all of our students to set foot on a college campus, so we have the honor of partnering with our local colleges to do tours, have lunches, ask questions, and experience what college life is like.Coe College partners with us to simulate “a day in the life of a college student” so our 6th grade students get to attend classes and sports practices, and have a lot of fun exploring a campus! Watch our video to get a glimpse of what this day looks like.
