Career Prep Program

Career Prep programs are available to high school students in partnership with Mercer County Technical Schools. Courses are offered during the school's afternoon session, from 11:45 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. daily, on the grounds of the Mercer County Community College's West Windsor campus.

These challenging college-level courses offer 12th grade students the opportunity to get a jump-start on their college education while still in high school. Participants capable of working independently in a college environment and completing the programs will receive transferable college credits, as well as their sending school equivalent credits toward high school graduation requirements.

Tuition for these courses is free to eligible high school students in Mercer County. However, students are responsible for purchasing books, required lab materials, and/or uniforms. Applicants for this program must have a recommended 3.25 GPA as well as excellent attendance records in prior high school courses.

Students may choose from a joint curriculum that includes Business Foundations, Computer Systems & Networking Technology, Criminal Justice, Dance, Fire Science Technology / Emergency Medical Technology, Landscape Design & Horticulture, Professional Cooking, Radio & Television Production, Theatre/Drama, and Vocal Music.

Some programs may be scheduled outside of the normal afternoon session, and specific courses within each program are subject to change or revision. Students follow the college calendar and are responsible for their own transportation when a school bus is not available.

Interested students are encouraged to consult their high school guidance counselor for more information.
