Community Education
As the community’s television station, NCTV17 is proud to contribute to both the high school and college academic experience, as well as highlight some of the many outstanding programs found at each level.
Naperville School Districts 203 & 204
NCTV17 and Naperville School Districts 203 and Indian Prairie School District 204 have enjoyed a long and rewarding partnership. NCTV17 helps keep the community informed and connected to both school districts through a variety of programs including: broadcast of their School Board meetings, production of numerous recognition events, and many stories featuring students and faculty which appear in the weekly program Naperville
News 17
.  NCTV17 also showcases both the boys and girls varsity sports from all the local high schools through their weekly highlight show, Naperville Sports Weekly.
North Central College
In 2006, Naperville Community Television and North Central College formalized their partnership with NCTV17 Executive Director Liz Spencer as Adjunct Faculty. Since that time, the relationship has developed further, resulting in educational opportunities and programming that benefits the entire community.

Spencer serves as Adjunct Faculty in the Speech Communications department expanding the TV/video/broadcasting curriculum. Spencer teaches the classroom portion on the North Central College campus; the students come to the NCTV17 studio for their production experience.

NCTV17 and NCC also partner to bring NCC sports to the community through the programs “The Red Zone,” featuring North Central College football and “The Cardinal Report,” highlighting many other NCC athletic programs.

Many NCC students have come through NCTV17’s internship program and some have gone on to become part-time or full-time station employees.
