Lone Star College-Kingwood, in partnership with Cleveland Independent School District, will again offer several basic college classes in the evenings at Cleveland High School.
“We hope to make college courses more easily accessible to the Cleveland and Tarkington communities,” said Ndah Somdah, assessment coordinator at LSC-Kingwood. “Providing opportunities closer to home will allow potential students from the area who have busy lives the chance to attend classes with less time on the road.”
Cleveland and Tarkington residents can start registering for spring 2016 classes on Nov. 11. LSC-Kingwood advisors will help register and provide other assistance at Cleveland High School on Dec. 2 and Dec. 3 from 5-8 p.m. The last day to register for spring classes is Tuesday, Jan. 19.
Courses offered are: biology, English, history and math. Upon completion of these core classes, students will be eligible to pursue various certificate or degree programs on LSC-Kingwood’s campus. This option will allow community members access to post-secondary opportunities that have been non-existent in recent years. LSC-Kingwood and Cleveland ISD look forward to growing this partnership, which will ultimately benefit the greater Cleveland community.
“Access to high quality education expands economic opportunities in local communities, and the college and Cleveland ISD seek to bring those opportunities to Cleveland,” said Kim Klepcyk, dean of Academic Support and Initiatives at LSC-Kingwood.
