Northern Essex Community College
Students can take college level courses during the school day at NECC and earn both high school and college credit. Students can take morning classes at NHS and then a class at NECC from 12:30 – 2 pm four days per week and use the Learning Center on the fifth day. This allows students to get back to NHS in time for after-school activities. The NECC program allows a student to take two college-level courses per semester. Each semester's college level course is worth 5 credits.
Students must have their own transportation to and from NECC. Students can review courses available using the NECC website.
