    MCEC stands with our military-connected students, their families, those who educate them, and the support structures that serve them. MCEC also welcomes our brave Afghan families and their students, whose service and sacrifice in support of Operations ENDURING FREEDOM and FREEDOM’S SENTINEL, at great risk, have earned them the support we provide our military-connected students as they, too, navigate extraordinary change.
