3 Schools are holding open houses this week -- It's a great time to think about going back to school!

Remember way back in January when you promised yourself you were going to get serious about taking some classes this year?  

Well, it's August and it's time to get serious about following through on that promise.

The good news is if you haven't quite followed through on that promise yet it's not too late. 

There are still four months left on the calendar and with three local schools holding open houses this week, it's the perfect time to find the right course and program.
