Pre-AP Courses

At a special called meeting on January 25, 2018, the North East Carolina Prep School Board of Directors voted to accept the College Board’s invitation to join the official Pre-AP cohort.  NECP will be among the first schools in the nation to implement Pre-AP for the 9th grade in Fall 2018.

The College Board defines Advanced Placement (AP) courses as “rigorous, college-level classes in a variety of subjects that give students the opportunity to earn college credit while high school.”

The Pre-AP program will offer consistent high standards in focused courses that help build, strengthen, and reinforce students’ content knowledge and skills. Pre-AP courses will prepare students  for AP and other college-level coursework.

The College Board will implement the following Pre-AP courses during the 2018-2019 school year, which will be available to all 9th grade students at NECP:

  • Pre-AP Algebra 1

  • Pre-AP Biology

  • Pre-AP English 1

Coding & Mobile App Development Courses

NECP was one of fifteen schools in the state and the only charter school to be awarded a $36,000 new Coding and Mobile App Development Grant awarded by the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction.  NECP will begin implementation of this program in January 2018 in partnership with Edgecombe Community College. 

The Town of Tarboro has agreed to partner with NECP in this initiative for students to create a mobile application for residents of Tarboro to access it online services.

Town Manager Troy Lewis stated, “In addition to the multiple benefits to the Town of Tarboro for the development of a mobile application, I am equally excited about your young scholars being provided this change to expand skills and improve opportunities for high-demand technology occupations.”

Students will earn college credit towards a two-year or four-year degree while still in high school and will receive a web and mobile development foundations high school certificate.

“This is a great learning opportunity for our students to be able to offer this program at our school,” Executive Director William Etheridge said. “This grant enabled us to purchase another laptop cart, and students will be getting high school and college credit for successfully completing these courses.”
