On Wednesday, June 26, 2013, Central Arizona College held its First Step Program BBQ along with friendly games of volleyball and flag football and a nice social gathering amongst the First Step participants.

Benny DeSantiago and Maria Munoz were in attendance to oversee, participate and answer any questions. They had a good turn out with around 25 to 30 students. Many of them enthusiastically played volleyball and football regardless of the heat.

The Central Arizona College First Step is a summer program for Pinal County high school students completing their sophomore, junior or senior year of high school and meet in-state residency guidelines. The program allows high school students to enroll in college courses before graduating from high school. Students who enroll in the program may enroll in up to seven college credits and receive a tuition waiver. The CAC First Step summer program started May 28 and classes last from five to eight weeks.

Prior to registering for coursework at Central Arizona College, first time, First Step students are expected to complete placement testing and attend and Advising Forum. Placement testing and Advising Forums are available by appointment only. Students much contact the CAC campus to schedule an appointment for Placement Testing and Advising Forum. First Step students are members of CAC Community College and are expected to adhere to all college rules and regulations listed in the College Catalog. Students are expected to attend all classes and are responsible for completing the withdrawal process for any courses they do not attend.

There is a lot of excitement and encouragement provided by high school counselors and the guidance counselors at Central Arizona College, Maria Munoz and Benny DeSantiago. The First Step program is a unique program and a wonderful opportunity. If you would like additional information about the program please feel free to contact Central Arizona College at 520-357-2800.
