Today, 38 juniors from both Discovery High School and Newton-Conover High School began their first period class at The Summit at Newton-Conover, classrooms on the second floor of the NCCS Central Office. These students are taking three college courses this semester and will be taking four courses next semester. These courses are all transferable to any public university in the North Carolina University System based on the College and Career Promise articulation among high schools, community colleges, and NC universities. By the time these students graduate, they will have secured a minimum of 28 college credit hours. These hours do not include hours they may receive from AP credit or other advanced options. Newton-Conover has partnered with Catawba Valley Community College to make this option available to NCCS students.
