An on-campus early college experience for area students taking dual-credit courses
The Northern Academy early college experience is designed to improve the transition to college or technical school for juniors and seniors who meet academic requirements to take high school dual-credit courses.
Engage on Campus
Northern Academy students take their dual-credit courses on campus, which helps develop a sense of community and belonging among students and with Northern’s outstanding and engaging faculty.
Experience the College Environment
Open to Aberdeen-area high school students, the academy allows participating young adults to experience what life is like on a college campus with full wrap-around services and support. Academy Director Eric Kline is point of contact for students taking dual credit courses on campus.
