I'm a sophomore at VMCCA, will be graduating 2020! So far everything has been fine, the teachers do care for their students and their safety. It's a pretty small school, so there's technically no reason to be lost at all. This school is college ready and if anyone is willing to take college courses for their junior and senior year, this is the place to be. Though I feel like my school has been getting a little bit easier to get in, this year I think that there were too many freshmen that applied here. I have heard some seniors also talking about how this school is getting a little bit easy to enter.

Vernon Malone College and Career Academy is great for people who loves hands on learning. Unlike other school they are built around project based learning, which means we learn to collaborate with our peers frequently. Another characteristic that sets this school from others is the opportunity's they offer. Vernon Malone is in a partnership with Wake Technical Community College. Through an academic foundation, paired with career-informed courses and work-based learning experiences, graduates of the Vernon Malone College and Career Academy will be prepared to continue on to a four-year university, or apply their earned credits towards an AAS degree, certificate or diploma program at Wake Technical Community College.
This is a very wonderful school that focuses on college readiness. There are a total of 7 Wake Tech Programs, which are Bio-pharmaceutical Technology, Nursing, Collision Repair, Cosmetology, Facility Maintenance, Welding, and Simulation and Game Development. However, I personally wish that this school offer more programs.
