Anne Arundel Community College and North County High School are coordinating efforts to bring college courses to North County High School students and the surrounding community.
The high school is encouraging eligible students to enroll in AACC’s Jump Start classes this fall at either the Arnold campus or at AACC at Arundel Mills. The school plans to offer Jump Start classes at the high school in the spring.
In addition, AACC will offer evening classes at NCHS this fall to help students who are at least 16 years old and have dropped out of high school and adults in the community get started in a new career, complete general education requirements or boost their learning skills so they can be successful in college.
Most classes meet one or two nights a week. Fifteen-week sessions begin Aug. 27 and include “Pre-Algebra,” “Beginning Algebra,” “Introduction to Sociology” and “Event Planning.” The next sessions begin Sept. 10 and include “Basic English 1,” “Basic English 2,” “Composition and Introduction to Literature 1,” “Participatory College Reading,” “The Critical Reader,” “Business and Its Environment” and “Adult Basic Skills.” Two other courses are “Certification in Sanitation,” a hospitality course, and “Prep Prax1: Math Skills” for aspiring teachers.
New students enrolling in a credit course must submit an admissions application.

Students interested in the Adult Basic Skills class should call 410-777-1823 to make an appointment to assess their skills prior to starting class.
