Basic Skills & High School Equivalency

The High School Equivalency program at BRCC prepares students in language arts, math, social studies, and science so they can earn their North Carolina high-school equivalency certificate from the North Carolina Board of Community Colleges.

And while you prepare for your high-school equivalency, you can also take college courses. We will guide you to the occupations that are in demand in our area and help you succeed in your career training — all while you earn your high-school credentials.
