College Transition Program

What’s the big deal about college

Years ago, attending college was a luxury that only a few

could afford. Many good jobs required only a high school

diploma, or even less. Not anymore. The road to most wellpaying

jobs now runs directly through college- it’s a fact!

The data is clear, the more you learn. . .

• The more you earn

• The healthier you are

• The better your children do in school

• The more likely you are to vote

• The more you volunteer and serve in the community

However, the process of applying and going to college

as an adult can be scary and overwhelming. The Maine

College Transition Program was established for adult

education programs to assist adults who want to go

to college. Cumberland-North Yarmouth Community

Education is pleased to announce that we continue to share

in a state grant for a regional College Transition program

with Gray and Windham Adult Education. Please contact

Sarah Davis at the Cumberland Community Education at

829-2208 for more information.
