The North Country Charter Academy is pleased to be the Main office for the new NH Career Academy!
New Hampshire Career Academy (NHCA) is an innovative, educational program that provides students with a pathway leading to a high school diploma, an associate degree and/or a career credential and a job interview with a New Hampshire employer, over a two-year period at no tuition cost to students and their families.
Students enter the program at the start of their senior year of high school, choosing one of the degree or certificate programs offered, and complete their high school graduation, and associate degree or certificate program requirements two years later, equipped with the knowledge and skills required to be successful in their chosen career.
Who is eligible to attend?
Enrollment is limited to New Hampshire high school seniors who have accumulated sufficient high school credits and meet other eligibility criteria such that during the two year program, they will be able to complete their remaining high school credits and the credits required to complete the associate degree and/or industry certificate program in which they are enrolled.
- 12th grade students in New Hampshire traditional public or public charter schools, non-public private schools and home-schooled students, who are residents of New Hampshire.
- The minimum enrollment age is 16. This may be waived by CCSNH. In evaluating such waiver, CCSNH will consider, among other factors, the student's demonstrated level of maturity, academic achievement, health and safety considerations given the nature of the program.
