Our Signature Program, International Trade, Transportation and Tourism (IT3), was approved in June 2010, and community stakeholders were granted permission to begin implementation by the Anne Arundel County Board of Education. In response to community demands for career-ready high school graduates, North County High School offers students unique thematic courses and co-curricular opportunities that are challenging and workforce relevant and may include technical, community college and/or four-year college pathways.
