From the Principal's Desk
Welcome to Natchez Early College Academy where we believe that success is within our reach through rigor, opportunity, and support. I am pleased to be the instructional leader of a group of motivated, dedicated, and highly educated teachers. We are all invested in the success of our students not only at NECA but at college and beyond: an affordable and attainable goal for all students.
This school year will be filled with opportunities, challenges, and diverse experiences that will allow our students to compete with the best. NECA courses follow a block schedule offered face to face, online or at the college. All students are experiencing powerful teaching and learning . Students are reading, writing, thinking, and talking in every classroom every day, without explicit teacher direction, to advance collective and individual understanding of core skills and concepts.
Every classroom teacher is incorporating higher order thinking strategies, rigorous questioning, Socratic discussion, text analysis and routine and timed writing. NECA students are on an accelerated path to enrollment in college courses as early as 9th grade. So we welcome a strong partnership with our parents and the community to ensure their success.
We look forward to a great school year. Be sure to come and visit us at NECA. NECA is located at the back of the Natchez High School campus. We are proud to have GREAT STUDENTS, to be a GREAT SCHOOL in a GREAT COMMUNITY. See you soon.
-Mrs. Kesha Broady-Campbell, Ed.S.
