Eligible NVTHS students who select Dual Enrollment at one of our partnering institutions have the opportunity to enroll in courses at a local college while they are still in high school. Credit for the courses applies to both the high school and college transcripts. The program allows a student to attend Middlesex Community College, Mt. Wachusett Community College, U Mass Lowell or Fitchburg State University on a full-time basis, while still enrolled at NVTHS as a high school student. The Dual Enrollment Program is available to any junior or senior who meets the criteria adopted by both the State and the School District. The student must be prepared to pay for tuition, fees and books and take on more challenging coursework.
