Registration for the series is required before March 31 at https://bit.ly/CollegeReady24 . The classes run from 5:30 to 7 p.m. on Thursdays from April 4 to May 2.

“We realize many young parents have dreams of going to college but aren’t sure how to start their education journey while raising their young children.

The prospective parenting students will be offered a free meal and childcare during each class. Those who complete the full series of College Ready classes will be given a $125 gift card.

The series will offer:

  • An opportunity to explore careers and majors offered at SFCC.
  • Assistance preparing and submitting their college application.

  • A chance to learn about options for childcare, as well as resources for SFCC parenting students.
