Clinton to Offer Evening Courses at Local Schools

Wednesday, December 12, 2018

Clinton Community College President, Ray M. DiPasquale is pleased to announce a new partnership with four local high schools designed to make it easier for adults to attend college.

The new partnership with AuSable Valley Central School, Northeastern Clinton Central School, Peru Central School, and Saranac Central School, is a pilot program in which Clinton’s courses will be offered in the evening, at their schools.

“Making evening courses available in locations nearby people’s homes is one way we can make getting a college education more accessible to our community,” states President DiPasquale. “This is an important part of Clinton’s Mission and Vision, and we couldn’t have done it without the support of the Superintendents and high school Principals.”

Paul Savage, Superintendent, AuSable Valley Central School, states “We are very excited to work collaboratively with Clinton Community College on this important college partnership for our AVCS community members. We are enthusiastic supporters of helping to increase college accessibility for the citizens of our local communities and grateful for the support of President Ray M. DiPasquale and Clinton Community College with this community-minded endeavor.”

In the upcoming Spring semester, students will have the opportunity to take Business 101: Business Organization and Management at AuSable Valley CS; Psychology 101: Intro to Psychology at Northeastern Clinton CS; Art 100: Art Appreciation at Peru CS; or Computer Science 102: Intro to Microcomputer Applications at Saranac CS. Each course meets only one day per week, from 6:00 to 8:45PM, and the semester runs from January 28 through May 17. Registration will be conducted at each high school in the near future.

These courses were selected for the pilot because they are part of many degree programs, and require few (or no) prerequisites. This means that current Clinton students may enroll in a course if it is more convenient for them, or, people who may be considering college but have not yet enrolled, may sign up.

The college hopes to expand its offering of evening courses at high schools in future semesters.
