Another school year is behind us...unless you’re in the year-round program. But that doesn’t mean education ever stops. In fact, the summer is when many students are using their time to get a head start, not just on their studies but their future careers.
Speaking of college, did you know there is a program within the North Carolina community college system that allows high school students to earn college credits? Not only that, but it is possible (however difficult) to earn your high school diploma and associates degree simultaneously. This means that a new high school graduate can transfer to any four-year college in the North Carolina state system as a junior, having received two years of tuition-free college education! The same program is also directly involved with preparing students for in-demand vocational trades, enabling them to potentially be hired right out of high school.
Lastly, courtesy of the EDC, we delve into what businesses are locating to Cabarrus County, who’s expanding and who’s employing the most people.
We hope you find this issue as educational as we did preparing it! Happy learning!
