A unique opportunity to earn college credit while still in high school
Our partnership with Guilford College is part of our larger vision to offer students far more than core. As a small school, we endeavor to know our students well, provide them with a rigorous college preparatory curriculum, and advise them thoughtfully. Combining these practices with access to the vast course catalog of Guilford, gives our curriculum an increased breadth and depth. Named as a “College that Changes Lives,” we know that at Guilford, our students are immersed in the Quaker principles that are an integral piece of their NGFS experience.
Qualified juniors and seniors may take up to two classes per semester at Guilford College. Students can choose from more than 40 plus academic classes offered. These classes, which offer credit for both NGFS and the College, are included in the cost of NGFS tuition. Course credits from Guilford College are transferable college credits, unlike AP credits which many selective colleges will not accept. In the past, some of our students have graduated from high school with a college minor completed!
