The Application Process
The Application ProcessThe PCS Early College Experience
Our school offers students the opportunity to earn a Pitt County Schools high school diploma as well as an Associates Degree and Certifications from Pitt Community College. We are located on Pitt Community College campus. Students become Pitt Community College students from the moment they enroll in our school. Students generally take the typical ninth and tenth grade core classes in English, Math, Science and Social Studies with PCS Early College teachers. Electives and other credits such as PE/Health, Art, and upper level high school requirements are met through courses at Pitt Community College. Students are expected to achieve an 80 or higher in all courses. Families should expect that their students will experience rigorous course work throughout their time at Early College.
How do we work with students and families to accomplish these goals? We are a small school. We admit a maximum of 75 students each year which allows our staff to get to know each student. We are committed to educating the whole child. Through our AVID program we help students learn to function effectively socially as well as intellectually. Communication between staff, families, and the students is key to our success.
