Our thanks to the EducationNC board of directors for your time, energy, and dedication to our students, our schools, our communities, our state…our future. A special thanks to English Sall for hosting us, but more importantly for your support and your vision of the work we do and need to do moving forward.

From our colleague Kendall Hageman:

The North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics’ Summer Accelerator program extends to a global audience our 30 years of experience offering innovative courses and opportunities to talented students. NCSSM is a constituent and flagship high school of the University of North Carolina system.

This past summer was the fourth for the Accelerator and the third summer that we offered Early Accelerator courses for younger students. It was the first summer that we expanded our program to another campus in Brevard. It was a huge success! The feedback has been exceedingly positive, and we are grateful to those instructors who taught.

Now we are excited to invite you to propose a course (or two or three) for the summer of 2018.

Please note that we will conduct two weeks of summer programming (including both Accelerator and Early Accelerator courses) in Brevard on the campus of Brevard College. Also, please note, that we will be limiting the number of students we have on campus each week, so please give us an accurate maximum number of students you can have in your class. Please consider if you could have more with a paid teaching assistant and note that possibility in your proposal.

Course proposals will be due by 5pm on Wednesday, October 11th, 2017. We will use the following week to clarify proposals and budgets and then announce the courses on November 1st, 2017.

The call for participation and FAQs, as well as the link to a Google Form to submit your proposal, can all be found here at our 2018 Accelerator Course Proposal Request.
