Our Mission

The North County High School Signature Program—International Trade, Transportation and Tourism (IT3) — creates college and career pathways through partnerships with community and business partners at BWI Marshall Airport, the Port of Baltimore, Maryland state transportation agencies, the Maryland Office of Tourism, international trade associations and many other IT3-related organizations.



“The opportunity to take AACC courses with IT3 means something big for me because I’m the first one in the family to go to college." - Karen, student

"IT3 started a fire that is only going to spread through the county and the state to further High school students education to the next level." - Kyle, student

"Through IT3 I’ve been able to figure out what I want for my future and how I can get there. It also gave me insight to the work required to be successful." - Kristen, student
