The 15th annual 5c Experience (Creative, Cool, Community, College, Camp) took place on June 19th-June 29th (Monday-Thursday) at West Hills College Lemoore. We gave 180 students, incoming 6th-8th graders, the chance to experience college. This two week program is for incoming 6th to 8th graders and aims to help them learn about college through classes, college mentors and engaging them in a dynamic college curriculum. This year’s focus will be on STEM, performing arts, career exploration, academic success skills and wellness. We accept applications each year throughout the months of April and May.
