CCC&TI Launches New ‘Night School’ Initiative

HUDSON, NC (December 3, 2018) — With local unemployment at its lowest level in decades, the demand for flexible scheduling for working adults attending school is increasing. In response to the growing need, Caldwell Community College and Technical Institute (CCC&TI) is launching a Night School program by expanding the number of classes available at night, as well as the number of degree and job training programs that can be earned at night.

“Our number one goal is to serve the needs of our students and the community,” said Dr. Mark Poarch, President of CCC&TI. “With the area at near full employment, there is a need for more non-traditional college and technical training options for students who work full-time jobs or have family responsibilities during the day.”

The new scheduling option will allow students to complete an Associate in Arts degree, which normally takes two years, at night in only three years. Both traditional seated and online classes will be offered. Though night classes are available on the Watauga Campus in Boone, the new Night School program will only be offered on the Caldwell Campus in Hudson with plans to expand it to the Watauga Campus in the future.

The program also will include short-term programs, such as Industrial Maintenance, Welding, Nurse Aide, HVAC (Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning) and other high-demand technical job training programs.

Spring Semester enrollment for degree programs will continue through Dec. 17 with classes starting on Jan. 7. Registration for short-term workforce training programs continues throughout the year.
