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
--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.
