Cooperative High School Programs
Cooperative Innovative High School Programs are located on Johnston Community College's campus and provide opportunities for students to complete an associate's degree within five years. Eligibility requirements for Cooperative Innovative High School Programs are established jointly by the local board of education and local board of trustees.
The Johnston County Early College Academy opened in the Fall of 2008 as a second partnership
high school between Johnston Community College and Johnston County Schools. This five-year
high school focuses on accelerated opportunities for beginning ninth grade students
to complete their high school diploma and a college transfer degree. Each year, 50
students are selected for this educational journey.
