The Lenawee College Access Network exists to serve many audiences – the students in our county who are considering how and when to pursue college or another post-secondary plan. That advanced training culture can include two or four year college, trade, technical or specialized school, or military options. It is also the purpose of the network to recognize, reduce and restructure barriers for those trying to pursue a post-secondary plan, in order that they apply for and complete their plans.
We also serve the parents in our county – they are seeking information for all ages of students, as they prepare and nurture their children into young adulthood and beyond. Parents and guardians use our network as a research tool for information, upcoming deadlines, and understanding financial obligations and opportunities when it comes to paying for advanced education.
Because the Lenawee College Access Network is comprised of so many individuals within the community, collaborating and working together, many community leaders and business owners have expressed interest in supporting our mission.
There are even those out there who have set up scholarships within the county to help our high school students get ready for advanced learning.
