High school students in the Northern Nevada region can now accelerate their education with programs offered at TMCC.
TMCC houses three high school programs to give students a jump start on their education while completing high school requirements. The three programs include TMCC High School, ACE Charter High School and CTE College Credit Program. Each program offers students an opportunity to earn college credit while completing their high school coursework.
The Truckee Meadows Community College High School is a Washoe County School District middle college high school for motivated 10th -12th grade students who are interested in simultaneously working toward a college certificate of achievement or associate degree.
This high school offers classes on two college sites to better serve our students: The main office is at the TMCC Dandini Campus and the Technical Pathways option is at the TMCC Pennington Applied Technology Center.
The Academy for Career Education (ACE) is a tuition-free charter school and trade school. The aim at ACE is to infuse the standard, high school core-curriculum with career-applicable training methods in construction and engineering
ACE Charter High School partners with Truckee Meadows Community College to provide technical training for students at the TMCC Pennington Applied Technology Center.
TMCC's partnership with school districts also gives high school students the opportunity to earn college credit before they enter college. The CTE College Credit Program grants college credit to eligible high school students completing approved Career and Technical Education (CTE) elective classes. The CTE elective classes are taught by high school teachers in the high school. CTE College Credit students earn the credit for free saving not only time, but a significant amount of money.
