Your Early College High School Experience

Your early college high school experience will be rigorous, rewarding, and yes—fun! Upon graduating from NOVA Academy, you will have saved both time and money by earning an associate degree, transferable college credit, or career certificate. Along the way, you will have opportunities to participate in activities, field trips, and events that will ensure your time at NOVA Academy is educational, inspiring, and memorable.

Through NOVA Academy’s College Opportunity Program, students begin taking college courses as early as 9th grade. NOVA Academy covers the cost of tuition, books, and fees so our students may enroll in these courses free of charge. Transportation to Santa Ana College is provided as part of our students’ high school and college experience during the school day.

Students at NOVA Academy choose college pathways and classes that align with their personal passions and career interests. These include, but are not limited to, a variety of professional fields in science, technology, engineering, art, and math. This saves students both time and money, allowing many NOVA graduates to begin college as sophomores!
