When NCCS district leaders collaborated with CVCC to develop The Summit at Newton-Conover, the goal was to provide more opportunities for our college-bound students to experience the rigor of college-level courses will receiving both high school and college credit. Thanks to the College and Career Promise articulation agreement among high schools, community colleges, and all of the state’s public universities, as well as a growing number of private North Carolina institutions, Newton-Conover and Discovery students who qualify and enroll at The Summit earn a minimum of 25 college credit hours in addition to any AP course credits they receive.
In year one, 36 students enrolled at The Summit. During year two, we saw enrollment increase to 75. During the 2017-18 school year, we anticipate that enrollment will cap out at around 90 students.
