Career Prep is a unique opportunity for 12th graders to begin their college education during high school. Students are enrolled, tuition-free, in up to 12 credit hours of courses at Mercer County Community College from 11:45AM to 2:30PM. Participants will receive transferable college credits and sending school equivalent credits toward high school graduation requirements. Students are responsible for purchasing books, required lab materials and/or uniforms. To apply applicants should have a recommended 3.25 GPA and an excellent attendance record. Available programs, as well as specific courses within each program are subject to change or revision each year. Some programs may be scheduled outside of the normal afternoon session hours. Students must agree to follow the college calendar and attend class, even if sending school transportation is not provided.
