The RIDE  Advanced Course Network (ACN)  will open registration for Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 courses on May 4th. Registration is now open and will close on May 29, 2020. Once you register for a course on ACN, Mrs. Toro will follow up with you. Please note the following:

  1. Registration will remain first-come-first-serve so please register as soon as possible if you are interested in taking a course. 
  2. Students will be eligible to take up to two courses each semester. 
  3. Students will receive dual credit (typically one-half or one credit for NKHS and either 3 or 4 college credits).
  4. Some courses are fully online while others are face-to-face. Be sure to choose the course(s) that best fit your availability and schedule.

Please consider taking a course as these courses help students get a head start on post-secondary success, master the skills required of a lifelong learner and be prepared for jobs in sectors critical to Rhode Island's future prosperity.
