nConnect is free to participating students, and offers several programs that support student success in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) classes, and help students learn about STEM careers.

Advanced Placement® Mentoring:

nConnect gives students the opportunity to work with a mentor who is an expert in their AP subject matter. nConnect mentors work with a small group of students before, during or after school over the course of the school year. Mentors support students by offering:

  • Tutoring to help them prepare for the AP exam
  • Mentoring to support students' college and career decisions
  • Challenging activities to help students learn how the course material is used in the community and the world

BizConnect (Career Cruising):

BizConnect is a part of the career information tool, Career Cruising, and is currently subscribed to by the schools listed below. Students working with the BizConnect program can research local companies in their field of interest and connect to local professionals through an online message board. The platform also makes it easy for students to set up career related learning experiences like:

  • Job shadows
  • Informational interviews
  • Mock interviews
  • Senior project advisors
