A message to our community
In response to COVID-19 and in an effort to keep our learners safe, NDEC has transferred to a virtual learning platform to keep our students engaged and on track for success. Learning never stops! We are all in this together!
Following the governor's order, our facilities are closed.
We are now offering online high school equivalency test (HiSET) preparation and High School Diploma courses for Fall 2020.
