Gateway classes to begin August 18 Print E-mail

Gateway Community and Technical College classes begin Monday, August 18. Along with offering General Psychology this fall at the Falmouth School Center, Gateway offers several online options. Online classes enable students to take courses from the comfort of home or from publicly accessible computers, such as at a library. Gateway operates a computer center for its students at the top floor of the Falmouth School Center. The lab can be used by any Pendleton County Gateway student during normal working hours. Along with technology, a Gateway representative is located in the Falmouth School Center three days a week and can assist with inquiries about admission, registration and basic questions about taking an online course.

Fall courses at the Falmouth School Center reflect the findings of a recent survey Gateway conducted  among community members, high school students and business leaders, in conjunction with the Pendleton Community Development of the Judge Executive and Adult Education, to determine what courses and education tracks were needed in Pendleton County. The survey revealed healthcare, business, criminal justice and information technology were the top four career choices of those surveyed.

Additional Gateway classes begin September 15 and October 16. If you are interested in more information, please contact Jason Moore at or 859-654-3325 opt. 4.
