Meade HS Students Visit AACC in School-College Partnership
March 25, 2014
Approximately 80 county high school and middle school students from the Fort Meade cluster will experience an array of topics – from forensic studies to terrorism-counter-terrorism at a Homeland Security and Criminal Justice EXPO April 28 on Anne Arundel Community College’s Arnold’s campus.
Sponsored by AACC’s Homeland Security and Criminal Justice Institute in partnership with Meade High School, the EXPO will offer students a glimpse into the range of opportunities in the homeland security and criminal justice fields. While at AACC, youth will rotate in small groups to learn about three main areas – intelligence, law enforcement and homeland security.
Meade’s Homeland Security Signature Program offers high school students thematic courses and co-curricular opportunities that are workforce relevant and include technical, community college and four-year college pathways. Meade’s Signature program specifically relates topics and ideas to homeland security – a topic that is unique to the Fort Meade community and Meade High School. By exposing students to the vast number of career possibilities in the industry, the program plans to increase students’ interest, as well as make them aware of opportunities for college.
