We are new students and returning students. We are local, international, and online. We span many cultures — LGBT, multicultural, veterans, and everyone else in between.
We are science and math, liberal arts, music and art, athletics, nursing and vocational arts. We are recognized educators, experienced staff, and caring counselors. We offer an opportunity for students to transfer to top schools or to find new careers. We are achievers, impactors, and innovators. We break barriers. We are proud, bold and strong. We are all here with one goal: to be great.
