Carter G. Woodson School participates in North Carolina’s Career and College Promise.

North Carolina is fully investing to ensure that our students are prepared for the economic future which is connected to the global economy. To participate in the global economy, workers 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 an excellent opportunity to pursue these options with free tuition while they are in high school. We prepare our high school students to get an early start on their workplace and college goals.

For the 2018-2019, Carter G. Woodson has 18 students that attend free community college courses at Forsyth Technical Community College. We pay the waived tuition fee rate and books for students that qualify to participate in the dual enrollment program.

In addition, we provide transportation from Carter G. Woodson to Forsyth Technical Community College.

To qualify for dual enrollment, a high school student must meet the following qualifications:

  • Be a high school junior or senior at least 15 years of age.
  • Have a weighted GPA of 3.0 on all high school classes or recommendation for consideration by the principal or his/her designee.
  • Must meet prerequisites for the courses in which the student is enrolling.
  • Demonstrate college readiness on an assessment/placement test for the courses in which the student is enrolling. Plan Scores will also be recognized at Forsyth Tech. To meet course prerequisites, students may be allowed only one retest with appropriate approval.
  • Courses taken at Forsyth Tech can be used for granting Articulated Credit at the high school level with Honors Credit status.
  • All students must enroll and register in the Office of Educational Partnerships.
