Free programs at BCC
Bristol Community College in Attleboro is enrolling students in two free programs, with classes scheduled to begin in September at its campus off Field Road. There are day and evening classes for its Adult Education (AE) Program. The program is funded through the Massachusetts Department of Elementary & Secondary Education. Also, BBC is offering free day classes for its Educational Alternative Pathway for Youth Program. The program is funded through the Mass Hire Bristol Workforce Board. The programs provide the academic skills that learners need to obtain their high school credential (HiSET/GED) and to successfully transition into post-secondary programs where they can enter a college degree or certificate program. Those interested should call Christa Silva at 774-357-3532 for additional information, a tour of the facility, or an appointment to register for classes. Orientation will be held the week of Aug. 26.
