- School Year: 2018-2019
- Applicants: Matthew Dicks, Lead Teacher
- School: Wolcott
- Subjects: Other ~ Career readiness
Fifth Graders at Wolcott Elementary School will tour Manchester Community College and Trinity College in order to provide students with an understanding of what college looks like, what is expected of a college student, and what opportunities are available to college students. They will meet with faculty and students and sit in on a college class. This can serve as a motivating force for the rest of their school experience. One of the Common Core primary directives is college and career readiness and an important part of that readiness is an awareness of what that ultimate goal looks like.
