Who We Are

The National Alliance of Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships (NACEP) is at the intersection of college and high school, advancing quality college courses for high school students. We are the only national organization supporting programs, practitioners, and policy to advance concurrent and dual enrollment programs.

Ensuring Program Quality:

NACEP works to ensure that college courses offered by high school teachers are as rigorous as courses offered on the college campus. As the sole accrediting body for concurrent enrollment partnerships, NACEP helps these programs adhere to the highest standards so students experience a seamless transition to college and teachers benefit from meaningful, ongoing professional development.

Supporting Practitioners and the Field:

NACEP advances the field and supports our national network of secondary, postsecondary, state agency, and partner members by being the singular source for national best practices, research, and advocacy. We share and advance knowledge through national, regional, and state-level convenings, federal policy seminars, topical webinars, published resources, and specialized technical assistance. Our annual national and regional conferences are the premier destination for college officials, high school leaders, policymakers, and researchers interested in creating an effective academic bridge between high school and college.

Advancing Impactful Policy:

NACEP believes that good policy supports good practice, and good policy is evidence-informed. We leverage our organizational and membership experience and expertise to advise and advance policy informed by research, evaluation, data, and the voice of the field. We work to advance informed and inclusive state and federal policy impacting concurrent and dual enrollment. We see evidence-informed policy work as critical to ensure program quality and improve equity in program access and student engagement.
