Important Information

Early College /Fire Science Students

Each college will each post tuition in the students' online accounts. If your student is taking classes with all three colleges, there will be three bills to pay. Questions regarding your student's financial account should go directly to the college, not Conner.

General Early College Information

Current sophomores must take the ACT (no writing) by the February test date and meet benchmark requirements to be eligible for the Early College Program. The scheduling process and applications are happening now.

Anyone interested in the Junior Firefighter Program with Burlington Fire Department needs to contact

Mrs. Hubbard for an application.
