The mission of the Newberry County Career Center's guidance program, in conjunction with other services and stakeholders, is to develop well adjusted, responsible, and productive individuals by assisting all students in their academic, personal, social and career growth.
Career and Technology Education (CATE) courses are provided to all high school students in grades 9 through 12. The Newberry County Career Center serves students from Newberry, Mid-Carolina, and Whitmire high schools.
The Education and Economic Development Act (EEDA) of 2005 was designed to implement changes in the South Carolina educational system through the development of a curriculum organized around clusters of study relevant to student career interests and the requirement of the real-world economy. At NCCC students have the opportunity to select a study (such as Welding, Cosmetology, Health Science, Architectural/Mechanical Design, etc.) to pair with their high school course work, preparing them for post-secondary study, specialized training or employment.
Upon completion of the required credits in a major, students receive a Completer Certificate.
