Welcome to High School Connections
Save the Date!
The annual High School Connections Orientation program will be held on the evening of Thursday, August 14th at 5:30pm. Doors will open at 4:00 for students wishing to pick up their ID, parking pass, and textbooks before the information session begins. We recommend parking in the central parking lot on campus, between the General Classroom Building and the Tony Rand Student Center, for easy access to both our Orientation locations.
4:00pm: General Classroom Building, 2817 Fort Bragg Road ** This part of the evening
is OPTIONAL. We expect a heavy volume of students for Orientation, so students and
parents may wish
to visit GCB for their ID, parking pass, and textbooks at another time.
5:30pm: General Information Session - Horace Sisk Gymnasium, corner of Hull Rd and
During this session, we will be giving away four $50 gift cards to the Bookstore- be sure to "like" us on Facebook or "follow" us

Students are asked to print their FTCC class schedule from home (via their WebAdvisor account) prior to attending Orientation. Directions on how to do this were mailed home during the last week of July. We will not have printed schedules available for pick-up.

Fall 2014 High School Connections Course Catalog
Students wishing to register for Fall 2014 High School Connections classes should view the "How to Enroll" tab to the upper left. In most cases, students should apply to FTCC online and then work directly through their high school guidance office to complete an enrollment packet. For public and private school students, we are generally unable to register you face-to-face in our office since we do not have access to your transcript, testing, or high school schedule.
For home-school students, please also view the "How to Enroll" information and then contact our office at 678-8542 or 678-8583 to set up an appointment to register.
The priority deadline for Fall 2014 HSC classes was May 23rd, 2014 at noon. We will continue to enroll students after this date, but any classes/programs that have reached their capacity as of May 23rd will no longer be taking accepting new students. As programs close for 2014-2015, we will update our website to reflect this information. Due to its highly competitive nature, the Nursing Assistant program specifically will not be accepting any new paperwork after 12:00pm on May 23rd.
HSC In The News!
The High School Connections program is thrilled to announce that a GREAT article has been written in the Fayetteville Observer featuring one of our students, Ms. Anna Rivera-Scott. A student at South View High School, Anna started taking Welding classes at FTCC during her junior year.
Anna's story, including the details about her award-winning metal sculpture of a dragon's head, can be viewed here.
Congratulations, Anna! We're excited to have you back for 2014-2015 :-)
For Our Recent Graduates...
Students who recently completed one of the High School Connections Career & Technical Education (CTE) certificate programs are reminded that they need to submit a final, official copy of the high school transcript to us in order to be processed for graduation on the FTCC side. Students should request this transcript from their high school AFTER the date of their graduation ceremony. Once FTCC receives this transcript, we will process the students for Summer 2014 graduation, and the student should receive their certificate around the end of August.
Requests for an official FTCC transcript can be made here. High School Connections students planning to enroll at FTCC as a full-time freshman
for the Fall 2014 semester do NOT need to submit another admissions application to
the college, but should visit the Admissions Office in room 115 of the General Classroom
Building for registration assistance.
