High School Equivalency Students Graduate


Nash Community College has announced its 2020 High School Equivalency graduates. Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the commencement ceremony previously scheduled for Thursday, May 14, 2020 at 6:00 PM in the Nash Community College Brown Auditorium, will be rescheduled later in the year.

“What an accomplishment,” NCC President Lew Hunnicutt said. “I applaud the determination and strength of these students, and I hope to see many of them return to NCC in one of our programs of study to continue their educational journey.”

The NCC College and Career Readiness Department serves students without a High School Diploma with a completely free program. The programs offered include: Foundational Adult Basic Education, Adult Basic Education, High School Equivalency, Basic Skills Plus, College & Career Readiness Bridge Courses and Adult High School.

“We are so proud of each and every student,” College and Career Readiness Director Ivana Stevens said. “Our students represent the incredible diversity of the community we serve. We love being able to provide a way back to school for anyone who is ready for a new start.”

Congratulations to the following graduates for meeting the requirements for High School Equivalency.

In addition to the traditionally paced coursework, Nash Community College offers a five-week High School Equivalency program. Provided through the NCC Continuing Education College and Career Readiness program, the “Boot Camp” is a multi–subject course that integrates the Social Studies, Reading, Writing, Science, and Math skills necessary to pass the High School Equivalency examinations. Because of the fast–paced nature of this course, perfect attendance, and adequate placement test scores are required.
