Northview Next Career Center

Career Center

School Mission

The objective of Northview Next Career Center is to help all students between the ages of 15 and 20 acquire a NVPS diploma, regardless of their circumstances. To that end, Northview Next Career Center will offer extended hours of operation, including summer and evening hours, so that students can design a schedule that accommodates work requirements, health issues or other barriers to participating in a traditional high school schedule.

The future of our workforce depends on the education and support we provide for our students now,” said Brent Dickerson, principal of Northview Next. “We give students hope by showing they have the skills employers demand and can truly be successful learners in the classroom and on the job site. We guarantee students who graduate from Northview Next will feel prepared and inspired to be life-long learners.

Featuring programs such as Career Awareness and Preparation, as well as Future Focused Fridays, NVPS is a leader in readying students for success after graduation. These programs allow students to pursue hands-on work experience through internships, job shadows and part-time jobs. Leaders at the district introduced Northview Next to further support students and Northview alumni as they enter the workforce.

It is our Mission to empower students for life’s next step. As a result we expect the following from all students:

♦ Demonstrate academic and personal integrity in all of their course work and efforts.

♦ Be honest in all situations to promote self-learning, intellectual growth, and character development.

♦ Always show respect to fellow students, their family members, Northview faculty and staff, and other individuals or groups within and outside the Grand Rapids area.

Our highly qualified teachers are clearly committed to our Vision of providing teens with both academic and social strategies and opportunities to reach their fullest potential.  We not only offer our academic services during the day but also provide a night school opportunity for our students.  Outside of the classroom our teachers challenge our students socially by encouraging their involvement extracurricular activities.  Within the past year, our students have participated in ultimate Frisbee, softball, and bowling; attended the Carrie play hosted at Aquinas College; served food to homeless at local shelters; marched in the Martin Luther King parade; and spoke at local town hall meetings.

We take pride in achieving our mission and vision to make sure we reflect our school’s belief that:

♦ School should benefit all learners.

♦ Every person has a basic need to learn and grow.

♦ Every person has skills and abilities.

♦ People are essentially good.

♦ Each person is a valued member of the school community.
