School Counts! is proud to be part of the partnership between our local school districts and UACCM to help our students with tuition assistance as a School Counts! graduate or an eligible concurrent student. We currently have 111 concurrent students who are getting a jump start on their secondary education. Leading up to our School Counts! Week in April, we will be showcasing a few of the students who are taking advantage of this partnership.

Current Concurrent Class?

Composition I at UACCM

Why did you enroll in a concurrent class? 

I wanted to take advantage of the opportunity to receive dual credit for Comp I and II, which will give me a jump start on my college career.

What is your possible career goal? 

I am leaning toward a career in surveying. I plan to attend UACCM and pursue a degree in this field.

Do you think concurrent classes are a good idea? 

Yes, concurrent enrollment is a good option for me during my senior year. This opportunity has given me the chance to experience a college environment.

What is something that most people might not know about you? 

I really enjoy spending time in the National Forests. On the weekends, this is my location of choice.

What do you like about living in Conway County? 

As I said before, I spend a lot of time in the Ouachita and Ozark National Forests. Conway County is located in the perfect spot for this. Neither is a far drive, and the county itself is home to some natural wonders.

What is your favorite thing about your high school? 

I enjoy the people I am surrounded by at Sacred Heart. The small environment is welcoming and the people are willing to help you.
