At Carter G. Woodson, our program is based on preparing students for college or two-year technical institutions. We follow a Future Ready High School Curriculum. Every course that our high school students take aligns with admissions standards of all the universities in the UNC system. In addition, we offer honor and AP courses. Within our high school program, all students will take an online course which will better prepare our students for the rigors of college. We do not allow students to have cellular phones on campus to ensure a pristine academic environment, but high school students have full use of two state-of-the-art computer labs.
