Corona Virus – Important Update

Class Schedule dates/times AND Mode of Instruction (Traditional Classroom Setting, Virtual/Online, or a Hybrid of the two) are subject to change with very little notice due to decisions made outside of our sphere of influence. If the state of Virginia decides to shut schools down, NHREC-CFAAT will go to a Hybrid model which includes Apprentice Related Instruction and Testing via an online system. No refunds will be made if this happens.

As New Horizons prepares for the upcoming school year, we ask our partners and upcoming students to complete this survey to gauge our community’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic in regards to educational needs. Please complete this survey in its entirety here.
