Since 2006, the School Counts! initiative has partnered with donors, UACCM, and K-12 schools in Conway County to increase the educational level of citizens, promote economic development, and support the growth of Conway County. The program provides tuition support or textbook assistance to eligible high school students to attend UACCM as well as concurrent enrollment assistance for high school students to take technical education courses. The Leadership Conway County Class of 2018 is partnering with the School Counts! Board to broaden this opportunity to include concurrent enrollment in general education courses in Fall 2018.
