College and Career Academy

A fundamental belief here at Rocky Mount Prep is that every scholar can go to college, enjoy a meaningful career, and become a leader in life. We have developed our curriculum around this belief and are committed to working together toward this common mission.

Program Overview

Rocky Mount Prep scholars enter the College and Career Academy (CCA) in the ninth grade. Here they begin studies geared toward their selected career options following one of our four tracks: Associate Degree (early college), College Credits, Career Credits, or Military Excellence. 

Starting in the eleventh grade, scholars can begin earning credits from Nash Community College and North Carolina Wesleyan University. These credits may be applied towards a college degree or to prepare for a career. Scholars have the opportunity to graduate from RMP with an associate degree. Visit our CCA page to learn more!
