    Posted by Syreeta Afadonis on 1/18/2019

    AP Macroeconomics and AP Government seniors attended a College Level Lecture and Seminar day with a couple of visiting College Professors.  The program is designed to give honors-level high school students a taste of college-level economics and philosophy. It was comprised of four one-hour sections of lectures, economic experiments, and discussion and the last hour was a presentation/Q&A session on the value of college majors and what students can expect in and how they can best prepare for college.
