Friday Academy


Northern currently hosts Friday Academy for 6th-12th grade students in efforts to enhance student’s critical/investigative thinking and reading/writing skills.

Northern’s faculty, students, staff, and facilities are put to good use as students experience hands-on learning in the area of STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) language arts and business.

Friday Academy provides students with a real taste of college life providing students with knowledge about their future choices and careers while introducing them to a college atmosphere.  Friday Academy takes place at our Espanola campus where we can host up to 100 students in one Friday Academy session.

Choose us for our value, our quality degree and continuing education programs in diverse areas of study, our experienced faculty, and NORTHERN provides students with unique opportunities for academic, personal and professional growth. “You will have personalized attention, something difficult to get at larger colleges. We provide strong hands-on experiences from day one.” –Dr. Ivan Lopez, Dean, College of Engineering & Technology
The Northern Foundation remains committed to stimulate leadership, promote equity, and grow resources and philanthropy in the Española Valley and surrounding rural areas. Over the past twenty years, we have granted $1.3 million to support over 1,250 NNMC students.
