People looking to prepare for college and for scholarship help can sign up for the Winter-Spring 2019 session of the College Transition Program at Lewiston Adult Education.
The free program reviews reading, writing and math skills in a college-style setting. It will include an expanded focus on time management as well as finding and applying for scholarships.
Class begins on Jan. 15 at Lewiston Adult Education's suite at the B Street Community Center on 57 Birch St. in Lewiston. The 14-week session will have Tuesday and Thursday classes.
Students will visit the University of Southern Maine's Lewiston-Auburn College and Central Maine Community College during the semester. Representatives from Northeast Technical Institute, the Maine Educational Opportunity Center and the Finance Authority of Maine will make classroom appearances to help students consider a number of education options.
The session ends with a graduation celebration that includes previous CTP graduates giving advice about going to college or technical college. Bright Lukusa was one of four former CTP students to talk about topics including classes and financial aid.
