Educational Opportunity Center (EOC)
Helping students overcome hurdles to achieve their academic goals.
The Educational Opportunity Center (EOC) is a great resource for individuals who want to earn a high school diploma/GED or pursue a college education. EOC advisors work with low-income, first-generation (neither parent graduated from a 4-year college) participants who show academic potential to help them ultimately enroll at the college of their choice. EOC offers services to adults, high school students and veterans who want to continue their education.
