Early College High School
Mitchell Community College operates two early college high schools in partnership with local school systems and a four-year college through the support of the North Carolina New Schools. Early college provides motivated Iredell County students the opportunity to graduate from a five-year program with a high school diploma and up to two years of transferable college credit with no cost to the student for tuition or books. Students enroll in the Cooperative Innovative High School Pathway in the ninth grade through an admission process unique to each early college.
The Crossroads Arts & Science Early College High School is a partnership of Mitchell Community College, Iredell-Statesville Schools and Catawba College. Crossroads students take their high school classes at Statesville High School and travel by shuttle to Mitchell Community College’s Statesville Campus for college classes.
The Collaborative College for Technology and Leadership (CCTL) is operated in partnership with Iredell-Statesville Schools and Mooresville Graded Schools. CCTL is located on the Statesville Campus of Mitchell Community College in historic downtown Statesville.
The Agriculture and Science Early College is located on the campus of North Iredell High School in Olin, NC. It is the first early college in North Carolina with a focus on agriculture. Students have several degree options and can participate in sports and clubs, including FFA, at North Iredell High School.
