Did you know… The Bethany Community School/Rockingham Community College Partnership brings the first four college courses (English 111 & 112 and History 131 & 132) to the BCS campus. Our students can take these four courses while still enjoying being on the BCS campus, participating in BCS athletics, arts, and extracurricular activities, and opting to take additional RCC courses online or face-to-face.
