On August 22 and 23, first-year Early/Middle College (EMC) students attended EMC Bootcamp. About 100 11th-grade students from Kalamazoo County gathered at Kalamazoo Valley Community College to prepare for the start of classes. During the two-day bootcamp, students learned how to login to the KVCC online system, used StrengthsFinder to discover their strengths, and located their classrooms. The students also learned about the library at KVCC through a fun, team scavenger hunt designed to show all the services the library offers.
Early/Middle College (EMC) in Kalamazoo County gives students an opportunity to earn an associate degree or certificate along with their high school diploma while completing a fifth year of high school. Students save both time and money as they pursue their post-secondary goals.
