Three students with certificates

North Shore Community College provides an opportunity for high school or home-schooled students to take college courses. Students may choose to do so to finish requirements for a high school diploma or for personal enrichment purposes.

Students should work with their guidance counselor to determine course selection based on the student s academic skill level and educational goals. Academic and student support services, including academic advising, career counseling, free tutoring, computer labs, and library access are provided to maximize success. Students are eligible to participate in NSCC-sponsored activities and clubs.
