Cabarrus County schools will open a new college-based high school in August in partnership with Atrium Health.
The Early College High School will be located at the Cabarrus College of Medical Sciences in Concord, which is part of the Atrium Health Cabarrus. Students will be able to receive free college loans and stay for up to five years in preparation for a career in medical science.
College-based high schools are part of the nationwide training of college students and first-generation color students to succeed in higher education and careers. There are currently in North Carolina 133 high schools located on the campuses of universities and community colleges. This includes two in the district of Cabarrus and about 20 in the Charlotte region.
Career paths at the new Cabarrus school include nursing, occupational therapy, surgical technology and medical care. Students will be able to complete their studies in five years with a junior specialist degree or credits to reduce the time and cost of obtaining a four-year degree.
