Why Consider Academies?

As a high school student, when you participate in an academy, you can get a jump start on your college career and may earn an industry-recognized certification even before you graduate.

The credits that you earn while completing an academy transfer seamlessly into programs at NTC and other colleges, saving you time and money.

Types of Academies Offered

We offer two types of academies to provide college-level courses both at area high schools and NTC campuses.

Depending on your interests, you may want to pursue one or both of the types of academies we offer. Both types of academies may be available to you at your high school so you can choose the type that’s right for you.

Dual Credit Academies

Dual Credit Academies are taught by high school instructors in high school, with your peers, during regular school hours.
