Secondary Education includes grades 6 -12. Upon arrival in middle school, students receive class schedules where they take courses from several teachers on a given day. Their classes are usually four or five core academic courses: English, science, mathematics, social studies, and electives that may include fine arts & humanities, physical Education, STEM, and/or exploratory career & technical education classes.
Students begin planning and preparing for life after high school in high school. We encourage students to explore the three E's - enroll in college, enlist in the armed services or become employed. All public high school students must meet minimum state graduation requirements to earn a diploma and graduate. Halifax County Schools students need 28 credits to graduate with a high school diploma. A total of 28 credits are completed with high school and dual enrollment college courses. These graduation requirements are considered the Future-Ready Course of Study (FRC) requirements and prepare students for post-secondary success.
Halifax County Schools Secondary Education Department is committed to preparing students to become successful global residents after graduation. We are focused on closing the achievement gap by providing evidence-based instructional practices, maximizing instructional time, and aligning resources to meet students' needs.
Residents with domiciles within the Halifax County Schools District have the option of two middle schools: Enfield Middle STEAM Academy and William R. Davie Middle STEM Academy; and three high schools: Northwest Collegiate & Technical Academy, Southeast Collegiate Prep Academy, and Halifax County Early College High School.
