On October 29th, those who wear costumes should keep in mind that costumes must be appropriate for school and not detract from classroom learning.  Halloween attire should not be offensive to anyone, contain profanity/sexual innuendos, promote drugs/alcohol/illegal substances, or be sacrilegious.  Imitation weapons, full face masks, or face painting are not acceptable.

You may pay online here or remit tangible payment to D103. No late payments will be accepted, as NPHS must follow a strict timeline set forth by the College Board.

Dual Enrollment

It is almost that time of year to begin thinking about course selection! In looking ahead, we want to highlight some development in our Dual enrollment (DE) programs here at NPHS. The DE programs enable students to earn both high school and college credits at the same time. DE is offered either on-campus at NPHS or off-campus at the college/university. Your student can enroll on NPHS’s campus in the following courses: Sports Marketing, Business Administration, Accounting 2, Marketing Strategies, Entrepreneurship, English 101, or Introduction to Education. These courses are all worth 3 college credits and are offered at a significantly reduced rate ($400 for business courses; $197 for education and English). We are also working on extending on-campus offerings for the upcoming school year, as we partner with University of Pittsburgh. If you want to explore off-campus offerings, you may take almost any course that interests you and also receive high school credit; most of our students attend MCCC, GMU or PSU Abington. Classes may be either in-person at the college or online (which you could potentially attend while here at NPHS). College registration begins in November for the upcoming Spring semester, so if you have any questions, please contact your counselor.
