STEP TO SUCCESS
We all have gifts. We help you develop yours so you can move on to the next level.
Our academic preparation is strong and most of our students go on to four-year North Carolina schools, including private institutions like Duke and Wake Forest. Our prime transfer school is North Carolina State; second is East Carolina. But we have Articulation Agreements including Division III schools.
Ninety-two percent of our graduates go on to four-year institutions and 90% of them complete their undergraduate education. Nationally, only about a fourth of students who enter a four-year institution straight out of high school graduate. Our students have a better chance of earning a four-year degree by coming here first, then stepping on up.
Here's a story that epitomizes what we do: A past chairman of our Board of Trustees first went to Duke and flunked out. (He loves to tell this story.) He says he came to his senses when he was working at Sears and he realized that he wanted more out of life. He came to Louisburg College, got the personal attention he needed, went on to senior college and graduated. Now he's a CPA with his own large accounting firm in Durham, NC.
That's what we mean when we say we help each student achieve his or her potential. It's not that we lower the bar... we give students the support they need so they can become successful.
Now that's a great mission.
