Welcome to our FOCUS on summer schedule. We are excited about using FOCUS as the new name for our program. In deciding on a new name, we recognized that our Eagle mascot is known for keen eyesight, this bird is able to focus from a great distance and hone in on its goal. Our program is designed to help meet your learning goals.
Like many organizations, colleges love acronyms, so of course we made sure that we could use FOCUS as an acronym:
Fee-Based & Non-Credit
Career & Technical Courses
Unique on-site Corporate Training
Success through Learning
FOCUS not-for-credit classes provide opportunities for personal and professional development; skill improvement and upgrading; cultural enrichment; recreational enjoyment and life-long learning. Hours of participation cannot be applied to a credit program. Fees for classes and activities are set according to the cost of the program. These not-for-credit classes are supported solely by registration fees. The program is not funded by taxpayer dollars. Class topics are selected and repeated as a result of community requests and participation. We offer a variety of on-line learning opportunities including career and technical education courses.
We also offer FREE non-credit adult education courses that include English as a Second Language, GED test preparation, Citizenship and classes for older adults. These classes are supported partially by state and grant funding.
Our unique on-site Corporate Training program offers training to meet local employer’s needs. We will bring an instructor to the workplace and offer high quality customized training to meet the individual needs of business.
Success through learning is about the positive impact and influence education can have on workforce and economic development. “We now accept the fact that learning is a lifelong process of keeping abreast of change. And the most pressing task is to teach people how to learn.” Peter Drucker
We hope that you will find something of interest in our summer schedule that will help you continue in your lifelong learning quest!
