American Education Week to take place at Education Center Nov. 14 through 17

The Army Education Center would like to invite you to a week of events planned for American Education Week, from Nov. 14 through 17 in Bldg. 9230, Commissary building off of Marne Road.

American Education Week, or AEW, was first celebrated in 1921 as part of an effort to raise America’s literacy rate after the World War I. AEW now serves as a chance to spotlight the importance of education from kindergarten through college. AEW only comes once a year, so we hope you will take advantage of this special opportunity to join us and see what education can do for you.

During AEW, prospective college students will have the opportunity to speak to more than 30 colleges face-to-face at the College Fair to learn about available programs and much more information. This can save hours of online research by talking directly to the people that represent each school. Education counselors will also be available to answer questions. Students can even begin earning college credits for free in a matter of minutes through our CLEP-A-THON event.
