Many in our community do not realize the resource we have in Wallace Community College Selma.

Among the other educational opportunities provided by WCCS, there are 48 ninth graders who are currently participating in a program that allows them to explore career options.

The two-week Summer Bridge Program also helps students bridge the transition from high school to the community college program of study.

The Summer Bridge Program gives incoming freshmen the opportunity to acquaint themselves with classmates, teachers, administrators and the school’s culture.

Students participate in math, science, and language arts classes during the two week program.

All instruction is research, hands-on and project based.

The Selma Early College High School program partners with WCCS, as well as other colleges including Tuskegee University, Alabama State and the Selma City School System.

Most would agree that education is essential in providing young people an opportunity to have goals and dreams, and to make those dreams a reality.

The Summer Bridge Program is one example of how local educational facilities are being utilized to do just that.
