Plan to attend the meeting at CCCEPA next Tuesday evening, 1/31, at 7:00PM!
Online Classes Required for Graduation Offered FREE OF CHARGE
CCCEPA Parents/Students:
We have exciting news! Performing arts magnet students can now take required academic graduation credits online FREE OF CHARGE through Move On When Ready at Georgia Military College. This is a huge advantage for our students. In the past, magnet students who desired a minor (or double minor) had to plan for expensive online courses. That’s no longer the case. 
Georgia Military College will partner with CCCEPA/Pebblebrook to make this opportunity available for magnet students who need online classes to allow for a PA minor or double minor. Representatives from GMC will come to meet with our magnet students/parents on Tuesday, January 31 at 7:00PM in the Reece Performing Arts Theatre. You can sign up for the program that evening. GMC will return to Pebblebrook to give magnet students the required test FREE OF CHARGE on the morning of Wednesday, February 8. 
It gets even better! GMC operates on a quarter system, so it’s possible to begin courses as early as March! Quarters are shorter than semesters, so students can complete courses more quickly, including during the summer.
