Today is the first day of the 2017-18 school year for six early colleges in Wake County Public School System including one new school — North Wake College and Career Academy in Wake Forest. The school will offer courses in culinary arts, early childhood education, emergency medical science, hospitality management and information technology.
In 9th and 10th grades, students will complete much of their high school degree studying with WCPSS teachers.
In their junior and senior years, they will take college-level courses from Wake Technical Community College instructors. They will have the opportunity to earn college credit and certifications through Wake Tech. Many students complete an intensive internship, applying their classroom knowledge and skills in a work environment.
