LYNCHBURG, Va. (WSET) – Project Launchburg; it’s designed to help kids right here in Lynchburg City Schools figure out what’s next after graduating high school.
ABC-13 tagged along as sophomores toured our local schools.
Many students walked through the doors of colleges to see if it would be a place they want to call home after high school.
Randolph College is just one of 7 local schools students could visit.
Five hundred and fifty five 10th graders chose two of those colleges to attend.
They toured one before lunch and one after.
We caught up with them at Central Virginia Community College this morning.
They got a tour of the campus and then had a meeting with admissions counselors to answer any questions.
The Lynchburg City School system says they couldn’t be happier with the partnerships they have with the local colleges to help their students move forward in their future.
“We want to make sure that academically they are prepared and that they’re making sure they’re responsible for their futures. So if we can help them reach higher by exposing them to the area’s colleges and universities, we know that we can give them a chance to achieve more for them and for their families,” said Sarada Hester, the Coordinator of Engagement, Equity and Opportunity at LCS.
The other five schools included Centra’s College of Nursing, Liberty University, Lynchburg College, Sweet Briar College and the Virginia University of Lynchburg.Tags: admission, community service, Lynchburg
