From our colleagues over at the North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics:

Is your student seeking an academic challenge this summer? The North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics (NCSSM) offers summer programs for students who are rising 5th graders through high school seniors. With specialized coursework in areas such as artificial intelligence, biomedical sciences, and engineering, students have the opportunity to engage in real-world, project-based learning experiences. This year our Summer Accelerator courses will be delivered online by skilled instructors and leaders in their fields, with years of experience in mathematics, the sciences, and the humanities. 

Our instructors are committed to the learning experience of each student, and bring their professional experience to the online classroom, broadening the experience for each student through a blend of asynchronous and real-time, synchronous coursework and collaborative projects.  

Outside of class time, students have the opportunity to participate in virtual extracurricular enrichment programs including:

  • Leadership development activities
  • Professional speaker panels
  • Online trivia and escape rooms
  • And more…

The new online course schedule, program details, course descriptions, and pricing are now posted online:

Early Accelerator (rising 5th-6th grades)
