  • -Juniors who may be interested in the variety of programs that ACC offers.
  • -Any students who just want more information about all the possibilities at ACC
Date:  April 8th
Time:  It will likely take the full school day
Cost:  $10
The deadline to sign up is Wednesday, March 30th, but we only have 10 spots reserved on the bus so it is first come first served for this trip.  To register students need to bring in the signed permission form along with $10 to secure their spot.
