K12 Partnerships

NWTC and K12 Partnerships

Together, we can increase the college and career readiness of your high school students.

Through TECHNOW collaborations, NWTC and its K12 partners are enabling students to earn college credits while still in high school.

School districts can customize their TECHNOW collaborations to fit their capacity and goals:

  • The majority of the region’s K12 school districts currently offer one or more dual credit classes, including transcripted credit, Advanced Standing, Start College Now and Youth Apprenticeship.
  • Some K-12 districts have strengthened their commitment to college and career readiness by building career pathways for their students. 

Career Pathways

Through career pathways, students can earn from 3 to 26 college credits toward specific careers – like nursing assistant and automotive – before they even graduate from high school! That strong start allows students to save thousands of dollars in tuition and makes it more likely they will persist and earn a post-secondary credential. 

Career pathways clearly connect high school students to the workforce – with an emphasis on attaining a higher education credential.

Partnership Benefits

NWTC partners with school districts to create beneficial outcomes for students, the community, and workforce:

  • Increased awareness of career pathways in technical occupations for high school students and their parents
  • Increased engagement and performance of high school students through delivery of STEM curriculum and hands-on, industry-aligned learning
  • Increased number of students pursuing a credential beyond high school, building and sustaining a skilled workforce in our communities
  • Shared resources among educational partners and professional development opportunities for high   school teachers
  • Tuition savings for dual credit students upon transfer of credits to NWTC (or other colleges/universities that accept the credits).
