The Guilford County school system has approved the creation of a STEM-oriented early college on the N.C. A&T campus. It is scheduled to open next fall. The school will give students the opportunity to earn up to 60 hours of college credit while going to high school.
The early college at A&T will be the system’s second (the first is at Guilford College). They serve as intensive college-preparatory programs. N.C. A&T already hosts one of Guilford County’s middle colleges. The system’s middle colleges serve students who may not do well in traditional high schools.
