For those of you have are done with all your requirements and are looking for something to do, you could be taking a FREE college class through Chemeketa. During this unprecedented Covid-19 time, Chemeketa is offering free online courses for high school seniors who have met graduation requirements. This means tuition, fees, and textbooks are all covered. They have selected a set of 15 courses that are available to students within their service district, which includes Silverton! These are all accelerated five-week college courses for spring term that will begin on May 4th. Registration will be on a first-come-first-served basis. They are calling this opportunity “BOLT to Chemeketa.”
To participate in this program:
• Students must be seniors who have met high school graduation requirements.
• Students must be in good academic standing.
• Students must have access to a computer/laptop and wi-fi.
• Students are limited to one* five-week course for spring term.
*Some students may elect to enroll in an additional two-credit FYE (First Year Experience) course if planning to attend Chemeketa after high school graduation.
Silverton is thrilled to partner with Chemeketa in launching this BOLT program for our high school seniors. We hope that you will be able to support your students in taking advantage of this opportunity.
I have attached flyers (in Spanish and English) for you to review this jump start program. Space will be limited, and registration will be a first come first serve.
If your student is interested and meets the above criteria, please contact Barnabas Wong at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible for further instruction/registration information.
