Alexis NieMiera“With its affordable online classes, NCTC has made my dream of being able to attend college and earn a degree possible.”

Growing up homeschooled has been one of the most influential parts of Alexis NieMiera’s life. Although financial restrictions didn't allow for many extra-curricular opportunities in her education, Alexis always seemed to find ways around this problem. From entering an essay contest to attend an FBI camp, to researching intriguing subjects in the library after school, Alexis has always been able to create her own opportunities.

Alexis wants people to know that NCTC is “great for people who have a job but still want to take classes.”

“With its affordable online classes, NCTC has made my dream of being able to attend college and earn a degree possible,” said Alexis. “If I weren't able to attend NCTC, I most likely would be forced to postpone my college experience until I had enough finances to attend another college.”

After completing her first two years at NCTC, Alexis plans to transfer to a four-year college to finish her bachelor’s degree. Ultimately, she would like to earn a master's degree or Ph.D. to possibly teach at a university.

“Although I'm unsure of where my degree will take me exactly,” said Alexis, “I do know that wherever I go, I want to keep learning new things.”
