Sponsor a Student

This fall semester, and perhaps every one that follows it, will be different because of the COVID-19 pandemic.  Special preparations and perhaps radical changes in traditional practices will be required for the protection of all of our students, faculty, and staff. 

MCCSC is committed to providing a high quality standards based instruction for every student while maintaining the health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff as our top priority.  The goal is to provide a re-entry plan for our students in an optimally safe environment.

To do this we need your support.  We ask for your help to ensure we are equipped for our fall re-entry.  Currently classes will start online on August 12 for all students.   This will be reevaluated and the shift to in-person instruction and our online academy will be made it is safe to do so.   All funds raised will offset costs incurred by MCCSC and will benefit the areas of greatest need across the corporation, equipping our students and faculty to learn in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Together, we will protect our students and faculty while keeping learning a priority.  Currently we have received 96 gifts totaling $17,545!  We have achieved 70% of our $25,000 goal.
