Episode 22: Comprehensive Opportunity College

Wake Tech is described by President Dr. Scott Ralls as "America’s most comprehensive opportunity college." Through the Career & College Promise program, eligible high school students in Wake County can earn credit toward a college degree or a credential for employment – tuition-free. Students can explore more than 40 academic programs, saving them and their families money on college tuition while also lightening their future course load in college.

Another incredible opportunity comes through a unique partnership between Wake Tech and the Wake County Public School System. Four Cooperative Innovative High Schools offer programs that are designed to expand students' opportunities for educational success through high-quality Career and Technical Education and dual-enrollment credit.
