NIKO DARBY, SENIOR & POSSE RECIPIENT “I love NCP because it has an environment of which success can be attained. Our teachers and students form such successful phenomenal alliances that I believe will someday revolutionize the realm of education. Whenever a student is struggling with a core topic, the teachers are here to assist the students and guarantee that he/she can continue to have a formidable plan to success. After graduation, I aspire to attend Sewanee University of the South and major in Biochemical Engineering”
DAVON EVANS, ALUMNI “Right now, I am in the process of transferring from Central State University in Wilberforce, Ohio to Virginia State University, located in Petersburg, Virginia so I can pursue my studies in Computer Engineering. Yes, I will have to start over as a freshman again, due to the curriculum, but it is worth it when you are striving to accomplish your dreams. After I graduate from VSU, I want to become a CCNA- Certified Network Engineer for Cisco or any other big technology company.”
MARIANNA STEELE Ph.D., DIRECTOR OF OPERATIONS "The students and staff have been very welcoming to me. I am excited to work at NCP and participate in all the awesome opportunities they have for the students. I have a doctoral degree in leadership and accountability and I also have one for New York State Education Department with Focus and Priority Schools on Long Island. My favorite high school memory is graduation!"
