The Center for Charter Schools is proud to partner with CMU to offer an exclusive event for CMU’s partner charter high schools. Experience Central is an innovative opportunity to inspire and inform your junior and senior student leaders as they prepare for their journey beyond high school. Your students will have the opportunity to experience a day-in-the-life of a CMU student. They will engage in an interactive experience of their choice representing a variety of professional fields delivered by faculty from across all of CMU’s six colleges. Students will walk away with firsthand experiences and a better understanding of what it takes to prepare for, and succeed in, their chosen field of study. Students will also experience how CMU offers the premier college experience! Event details and registration will be announced spring 2024.
