Our Making Connections program has continued to make strides, expanding our offerings to high school students across our local community. With new programs like Girls Who Code and new partnerships with local companies and other colleges, our students have held our goal of 100% of MC graduates going to college (i.e. technical, 2 and 4 year schools).
