Preparing college and career ready students with transferable 21st century skills is one of the goals of New Town’s Completer Program. The school’s seven Completer Pathways place students in real world situations that encourage problem solving and innovation. In many programs, industry certification and/or post-secondary opportunities are available. At New Town, we are preparing students for futures in some of the fastest growing industries.
A completer program contains a minimum of four credits offered in a prescribed sequence in a program area. Upon graduation, students will be able to enter employment, register for an apprenticeship, earn industry certification, and/or attend a post secondary school in order to earn a certificate or degree. Capstone work experience (CWE) may be available to eligible students in the junior or senior year. Students are also able to earn articulated credits at the Community College of Baltimore County.

New Town’s Administrative Services Completer places students in a simulated company environment that allows for problem solving and decision making. Coursework is designed to assist students in developing and honing managerial and technical skills. With the teacher assuming the role of employer, students can earn a Microsoft Office User Specialist (MOS) certification. This completer pathway encourages students to analyze, synthesize, and evaluate situations at home, school, or work and apply technology to complete tasks efficiently and effectively. Students can also earn free college credit, since coursework articulates to The Community College of Baltimore County (CCBC).

The Articulation Agreement has been developed for students in Baltimore County Public Schools (BCPS) who plan to continue their education at The Community College of Baltimore County (CCBC). The Agreement describes articulated programs that build on BCPS’ approved learning experience with the goal of eliminating duplication of instruction. High school students who achieve at appropriate levels in the high school programs listed in the Articulation Agreement may request credit for documented achievement when they enroll in CCBC.
