HACC’s Early College Academy offers advantages to seniors


HARRISBURG – High school and home school seniors can get a jump on college with HACC’s Early College Academy this fall.
“The new concurrent enrollment program offers students the opportunity to explore a career path and develop college readiness while earning credits toward a college degree,” said Joanna Stoms, college in the high school coordinator at HACC’s Harrisburg Campus.
