One hundred 5th grade students from Wolcott School will visit Manchester Community College for a day of discussion and meetings with both college staff and students. Many of these students come from homes with limited financial means and post-secondary education appears to be unattainable. At the end of the visit, these 5th graders will have learned that there are affordable paths to a college education, and that, as they approach middle school, their dreams are not limited by their financial status.
