Pathways for High School Students to NOVA

As a high school counselor, you want to be sure that your students succeed in college. NOVA has created multiple pathways for an easy transition. As you try to match your students to the right school, keep these vital programs in mind.

Dual Enrollment

Students can earn college credits while still working on their high school diploma. NOVA’s Dual Enrollment allows motivated high schoolers, who demonstrate readiness for college, to study alongside enrolled NOVA students in preparation for the next step. If they start early, they can finish college early, saving time and money.

Pathway to Baccalaureate

Pathway to the Baccalaureate is an award-winning consortium of 10 educational institutions in Northern Virginia providing a seamless web of support as students transition from high school, through NOVA, to a four-year college or university.
