A Free, Public, Charter High School focusing on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math with a foundation in Computing

Follow Us On:


Welcome to the website of Carolina STEM Academy. We are a free, public, charter high school with an academically accelerated STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) curriculum that features a foundation in computing. Serving students from Mecklenburg and surrounding counties, for the 2015-16 school year we will be enrolling rising freshman and sophomore students. Other grades will be added in subsequent years.  


Enrollment Continues

There's been some (understandable) confusion about enrollment. Although the state-mandated "open enrollment" period has ended, we will continue to take applications for enrollment until we have reached our allotment of 200 applicants. Once we have reached 200 applicants, we will begin a first-come-first-served waiting list. We still have slots available, so, please, click here and apply.

Sorry for the confusion.

Public Information Conference Calls

As enrollment continues, we want to give families a unique opportunity to learn more and ask specific questions. Instead of a formal presentation, we would love to answer your questions as you decide whether applying to Carolina STEM Academy is right for you and your child. These calls will take place on each Thursday in March

Next date: March 26, 2015
Time: 7:00 pm
Phone number: 805-309-2350.  You will be asked for your Participant Access Code, which is 314159.

Partnership with UNCC's College of Computing and Informatics:

Carolina STEM Academy is excited to announce that we will be partnering with the College of Computing and Informatics at UNCC to provide a foundation in computing for our students.  

Our goal is to teach students creative, collaborative, interdisciplinary and problem-solving skills.  Through our computing program they will learn these skills as they:

--Analyze the effects of developments in computing

--Design and implement creative solutions to problems

--Apply abstract ideas

--Build models

--Analyze their own computational work and the work of others

--Communicate computational throught processes, procedures and results to others

--Collaborate with others on computing activities.
