    Purpose:
    Duplin County Schools, in partnership with James Sprunt Community College (JSCC), offers students the opportunity to pursue advanced credits through participation in career academies.  Career academies are organized as small learning communities combining academic and career technical education courses into career themed curricula.  Students enrolling in the academies complete high school graduation requirements while having the opportunity to take community college courses during their junior and senior years of high school.  Proper course selections, as well as sustained academic progress, enables students the opportunity to take prescribed community college courses while in high school.
