North Middle High School seniors participated in College Application Day, a statewide initiative sponsored by the South Carolina Commission on Higher Education and the South Carolina Department of Education. While much of the focus of College Application Month is geared toward first-generation college students and students who may not otherwise apply to college, all seniors are encouraged to participate. On September 13, 2016, every senior at NMHS applied to college, and representatives from Orangeburg-Calhoun Technical College, Claflin, Voorhees, Allen University, USC Salkehatchie, College of Charleston, and Denmark Technical College were available for assistance during the process. In preparation of College Application Day, the seniors researched college options, application deadlines, application fees and prepared personal statements.
