About NPCC

One of the main community colleges in Arkansas, National Park Community College (NPCC) offers a number of academic and career programs, its teacher-education division being one of its most noteworthy.

It doesn’t hurt that NPCC is located right in between the beautiful Hot Springs National Park and the expansive Oachita National Forest, either!

The education program at National Park Community College for future elementary and middle school teachers has grown significantly in recent years. Now working jointly with Henderson State University, NPCC’s education program allows students to transfer more smoothly into becoming certified teachers.

National Park also offers numerous other associate’s degrees and vocational certificates in the arts, sciences, general studies and technical fields.

There are also non-credit continuing education programs for those seeking personal enrichment, basic adult education courses and even a program for high school students.

Career services at NPCC offers excellent, comprehensive help for students. This includes hosting job-specific and general career fairs, job referral services, career assessments, access to career-matching software and a combination of workshops and one-on-one career counseling.

Student and parent loans, Pell grants and work-study are some of the financial aid options available to eligible students, all of which may be read about on the highly detailed NPCC website.

Student at This School - Grad Year 2013

Overall Rating

I can recall my very first semester at NPCC, I was so afraid and confused but the staff and students here were so freindly and a I have found NPCC to be a great college for anyone who is trying to advance thier career.


Former Student - Last Attended 2013

Overall Rating

This college has very caring and considerate staff members. I went a few days and realize that I was paying the teachers to do nothing because everything was online. if I pay money to go to school I'm going to expect to have help from a teacher what it amounts to is that you go to class and sit there during the day and everything else is online I realized I could have taken online classes and it would have been cheaper and it would have been the exact same thing
