Additionally the program focuses on “Life Skills” courses that support the district and state agencies' objectives regarding drugs, theft, personal nutrition character education, various academics and first aid education.  The curriculum is full of fun, engaging, and challenging activities and will expose students to a variety of experiences designed to help them grow emotionally and academically while stressing the importance of personal responsibility.

Extra-Curricular Activities

NMSCC activities are not limited to the classroom.  Students have opportunities to participate in a number of extra-curricular events.

Ceremonial Drill:  Students are able to develop precision and timing while working with peers.  This activity serves as a leadership laboratory where students can practice their leadership skills.

Color Guard:  Students who are held to the highest standards of appearance, bearing, and discipline represent the program at parades and community events. Again, another opportunity to hone leadership and communication skills

Physical Fitness Training:  Promotion of a healthy lifestyle through physical activities and competitions.

Community Service/Service Learning:  Civic engagement is a tool that allows students to help improve the community in which they live while discovering their passions or interests. Service Learning takes community service quantum leaps forward by reinforcing classroom content through the opportunity for students to apply their knowledge, develop skills and build character via service
