High School Presentations

Late October/Early November  |  Local Partner Schools

WCCC student ambassadors will visit the local high schools and present to all sophomores and share all about what WCCC has to offer, their journey, and answer any questions! Students will have the opportunity to sign up for the Sophomore Explore field trip to visit WCCC campuses with their school in mid-November. 

We will visit our partner schools, which are *Franklin, Kings, Lebanon, Little Miami, Springboro and Waynesville.  All field trip details will be handled at school through the guidance offices. Parents do not need to contact us directly for this event.

*If you do not attend one of these schools but are interested in learning more, please see the bottom of this page.

At the Sophomore Explore field trip, we welcome you to spend time hanging with current students to get a feel for what WCCC is all about. You'll get to explore the labs, meet the program teachers, have fun, and try new things!

Important Details:

  • Sophomore Explore is a student (and school personnel) only field trip allowing potential students to have an in-person test drive of the WCCC experience.
    *Parents/guardians can attend Open House on Dec. 7 to get their questions answered and learn more.
  • All arrangements for the field trip will be handled by your school district except you may need a parents/guardians to sign a permission slip.
  • You'll ride a bus to one of our campuses, then spend time working with teachers and current students trying hands-on projects and learning all about WCCC!
  • This is a free field trip, lunch is provided, so all you have to do is show up, open your mind to exploring cool options for your future and have fun!

We hope you'll leave Sophomore Explore knowing that WCCC is the place you WANT to be for your junior and senior year!
