Will NDCR be providing transportation to the new location?
  • Since the opening in 2004, NDCR has only provided transportation to and from the Corporate Work Study Program jobs. Though we will be moving a short distance away, we are considering a number of ways to best support families as they consider transportation. Whether this is car pooling, public transportation, or providing outside resources it is all being considered and will be offered in time. Please note that any of these, if not all, may require expenses (i.e. gas).
 
How, when, and where can I get my uniform?
  • Uniform can be ordered from JB Pride Uniforms online or over the phone. They are not accepting in person fittings, unless requested and necessary to minimize contact on materials. The price list and discount flyer is located in PDF at the bottom of this page. 
  • Families do not need to order uniform by June 30th, but should plan to have their orders completed by mid July for students to be in full uniform by August 31st. We understand the difficulty of not be able to do proper fittings, but if there are any issues in getting your uniform please call the Admissions Office.
 
When and how can I pay tuition?
  • In July, the main office will begin preparing information to be mailed home for the start of August (i.e. the calendar, tuition bill, and official letter)
  • Tuition payments are on the 1st of every month beginning on August 1st until the last payment May 1st. 
  • Payments can be made via check, cash, or card to the Finance Office in person, through mail, or over the phone. Recurring payments can be placed through the Finance Office.
 
Will the Summer Bridge Program and Summer Training Institute still be held in the summer?
  • After receiving notice from the state and the Department of Education this month (June), Administration has decided to postpone both the Summer Bridge Program and Summer Training Institute to the fall. These programs will be integrated into the curriculum and given to freshmen on their usual work day (Wednesday) and to transfer students according to the specified work day. Work for the Corporate Work Study Program will likely be pushed to the second semester to ensure students are prepared and successful in both school and work. 
  • There will be no $40 Summer Training fee.
 
How  do I know which summer program(s) to attend?
  • For the start of the 2020-2021 school year, whether a student was admitted into the Summer Bridge Program or not, all new incoming students will receive support on their designated work day as stated in the previous question. Summer Bridge and Summer Training has been postponed to the fall. 
  • Both summer programs are mandatory. All new students are expected to attend the Summer Training Institute and only some are required to attend the Summer Bridge Program. A students acceptance letter states whether a student is expected to one or both programs. If you are still unsure, please contact the Admissions Office for clarification. Remember, if a student misses this programs their acceptance may be rescinded.
  • Summer Bridge Program is an academic-based program providing students classes in English, Math, Study Habits, and College Readiness. The Summer Training Institute is designed to prepare students for work. Classes offered include personal development, business etiquette, entry level office skills, and more. No materials are needed for either program and supplies will be provided to you.
