Why NLCP?

“At NLCP, I learned the power of my voice and how to use it to create change in my community. As I head off to college next year, I am eager to expand my knowledge and broaden my impact on the world.” –Danielle Nolen (NLCP Class of 2019, DePaul University Class of 2023)

“Every single staff member I came into contact with believed in me, motivated me and encouraged me even when I didn’t believe in myself.” –Nicole Branch (NLCP Class of 2002, BSW Clark University and MSW, University of Houston)

For more than two decades, NLCP has been home to limitless talent. Whether to our 750+ high school students, the 99% of our alums who have been accepted to college or our elite team of teachers and school leaders, NLCP proves every day what’s possible when students are met with high expectations and a culture of love and support.

NLCP consists of two tuition-free public charter school sites, Christiana Campus and Collins Campus, both of which serve grades 9-12 with fidelity to NLCP’s mission and model.

A core part of NLCP’s approach is a dual focus on college-prep academics and on developing the social and emotional intelligence of our students. And, in partnership with families and community leaders, we support students every step of the way in their high school journey.

In the early 9-10 grade years, we focus on supporting students and on developing an early awareness of life after high school through college visits and our college-going culture. In 11-12 grade, students take SAT prep classes, a college seminar class and complete a college style research project to solidify the path to higher education. Once enrolled in a college or university, NLCP supports alumni to complete college through an array of mentoring programs as well as financial support to qualifying students.

Antonio (NLCP Christiana, Class of 2015)
Antonio is a graduate of NLCP’s Christiana Campus. Antonio took advantage of every opportunity available to him at NLCP. He used the public speaking and research skills he developed as a member of NLCP’s Debate team to tackle his senior project which asked “Is morality an inherent part of human nature or a social construct?” Antonio was invited to present his senior project at Colloquium where he won a scholarship for his freshman year at Trinity College.

“I had been wanting to go to Colloquium since I was a sophomore. It was exciting to discuss my project with so many different teachers, parents and mentors.”
