High school students across Wayne County now have the opportunity to take free college courses through a new program at Indiana University East. The program is funded by the Wayne County Foundation and First Bank Richmond.
The program is available to juniors and seniors attending Centerville High School, Hagerstown High School, Lincoln High School, Northeastern High School, Richmond High School or Seton High School. Each high school can enroll up to 15 students in two courses per semester. Richmond High School can enroll up to 30 students due to the size of the corporation.
School guidance counselors will work with students who may be eligible to participate in the program. The program is designed to primarily serve first-generation college students or students from underserved families (including minority or students receiving free and reduced lunch).
