Welcome to the 2019-20 School Year!
 
I will update my website often with information on Reproductive Health, high school registration, Yadkin Early College information, special speakers, etc. 
Due to the school closures for the next two weeks, the application deadline for Yadkin Early College will be extended. You may print out a copy of the Early College application from this website. If you email me, I can get the teacher recommendations that students need. Please email me with any questions or concerns. Thank you!
