Back to School

8 youth at Long Creek are taking advantage of two college credit courses being offered this semester thanks to the Friends of Long Creek’s Creek to College program and a collaboration with Southern Maine Community College.

Cultural Anthropology and Oral Communications are being taught inside the facility making a college education accessible to students whose circumstances would otherwise prevent attendance.

Another student is taking an online math course, Advanced Algebra and Trigonometry.

One student says, “Thank you for the opportunity to better ourselves as people and students. I took three courses through Creek to College and, for the first time in my life since I dropped out of high school, pushed myself to the best of my circumstances. I passed with all A’s and received a new burst of confidence in my education that would not have been possible without the help of the Friends.
