News

The Newton College and Career Academy STEM Institute, NCCASI, is currently recruiting rising freshmen with a strong interest in engineering or healthcare as their future career choice. While NCCASI students vary in their background and represent the diversity of Newton County’s population, they are similar in their motivation to achieve academically and in their determination to prepare for professional careers and positions of leadership. Students will achieve this through exposure to a unique curriculum combined with project-based/problem-based learning.

NCCASI’s Open House will take place Tuesday February 17th from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. We will present information sessions and provide tours for interested students and parents. We will also have current NCCASI associates available to share their experiences.

Applications for the 2015-2016 school year will be available February 11th. Applications must be submitted electronically to ncca_si@newton.k12.ga.us and can be found on the Newton College and Career Academy website. The application deadline is Wednesday March 4th.
