Concord High School has been named a Partner School in the launch of the Indiana State Department of Education’s Urban College Acceleration Network (UCAN)! UCAN is a new partnership between urban Indiana schools and has a mission to increase student access to postsecondary courses through the Early College High School Program, and Concord is proud to be selected as an inaugural partner. “As we reflect on the educational needs of our students -- especially post-pandemic -- there is a strong desire to provide college wrap-around services so that students are supported at high levels,” CHS Principal Lisa Kendall said. “What makes UCAN beneficial are the academic support, perseverance skills, and problem solving skills woven into the academic structures they can provide the students at Concord High School. This partnership comes at the perfect time to benefit the college readiness skills needed in an economic climate heavily focused on industrial and manufacturing institutions.” Read more: https://www.concordschools.com/o/chs/article/757535
