Quote from the President

"Northland Pioneer College's (NPC) focus is on learning—whether it is helping to improve the math or reading skills of an adult learner, preparing students to transfer to a four-year university, teaching technical skills to enter the workforce, or instructing those pursuing a personal interest or hobby. Our students can choose from a wide variety of programs, offered in a number of formats with small class sizes and high academic standards."
