Welcome to McDowell Early College, located in Marion, NC
August 6: First Day of School
 Wednesday, August 6 will be the first day of school for all MEC students.  Bring your laptops and be prepared to attend academic classes. 12th and 13th graders should have received a letter at their homes during the week of July 21, 2014, outlining this requirement for them to attend classes.  All questions should be directed to Lisa Robinson, Principal. 
August 5: Open House
 Open House for all MEC students will be held on Tuesday, August 5 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.  Please plan to stay the entire time.   Students who are 18 and still live with a parent are required to bring a parent with them to complete all the necessary paperwork. Remember that we will be collecting the $25 computer insurance fee and the $75 Summer Bridge fee at Open House (you can also set up a payment plan at this time).   
Senior Portraits on July 31
Lifetouch Photography will be at McDowell High School on Thursday July 31, to take pictures of all MEC students who intend to graduate in 2015.  Lifetouch will be mailing packets of information to your home the week of July 7.
This is an updated date from what we were originally told.  They will be at McDowell High additional dates, so if you cannot come on July 31, contact Lifetouch for an alternative date. Please contact Lifetouch directly with any questions or concerns at (828) 684-0390.  They will come to MEC on September 3 to take make-up pictures, but they will not have as many backdrop options at that time.
Summer Bridge 2014: $75 per student
Summer Bridge is MEC's annual school-wide retreat, which will be held August 14-16, 2014, at Look Up Lodge in Traveler's Rest, South Carolina.   The cost per student is $75, and payment plans can start now.  A packing list and schedule will be provided at Open House on August 5.
