What is a Captain?

Annie Keith"Transition to R-MC begins after a student decides to enroll and ends with the start of their second year. It takes time to find stability; through that process there will be triumphs and bumps. Our students won't navigate them alone. My staff and I are here for every student, and we want to meet them where they are on their journey."
