Career & College Promise offers North Carolina high school students a clear path to success in college or in a career. The program is free to all students who maintain a “B” average and meet other eligibility requirements.
Through a partnership of the Department of Public Instruction, the N.C. Community College System, the University of North Carolina system and many independent colleges and universities, North Carolina is helping eligible high school students to begin earning college credit at a community college campus at no cost to them or their families. Three pathways offer students the opportunity to earn:
- College credit completely transferrable to all UNC System Institutions and many of
North Carolina's Independent Colleges and Universities.
- A credential, certificate or diploma in a technical career.
- A high school diploma and two years of college credit in four to five years through innovative cooperative high schools (limited availability).
All NCVPS and Career and College Promise registrations must be approved by guidance.
If you have any questions, contact Lester Boltinhouse, or your Guidance Counselor.
Students participating in Distance Learning Classes should be:
- Self motivated
- Self disciplined
- Able to work well independently
- Good with time management
