Non-Public Schools Community College Day

Rockingham Community College held a Community College Day for Non-Public High Schools. This was a special event for North Carolinians for Home Education, homeschoolers located in Rockingham County. The event took place on March 17, 2018 from 9:00am – 2:00pm on the campus of RCC and was an opportunity for homeschoolers and the homeschooling parents to learn about the educational opportunities available at the college. They were given a chance to learn about the Career and College Promise “Tuition Free” program, tour the college campus and visit various program areas, while also meeting faculty.

Success in today’s global economy may require a two-or four-year degree, a certificate or diploma. Through Career & College Promise (CCP), qualified high-school-age students in North Carolina have the opportunity to pursue these options, tuition free, while they are in high school, allowing them to get a jumpstart on their workplace and college preparation. North Carolina Homeschoolers are eligible to participate in free tuition program.

The homeschool population in Rockingham county is continuing to experience constant growth and Rockingham Community College is positioned to play an important role with supporting the educational goals of the homeschoolers. This institutional initiative is a focused outreach specifically for the Non-Public Schools in Rockingham County and to support the homeschoolers by informing them of the college’s educational resources.
