STEM Institute Accepting Applications for 2016-2017

The Newton College & Career Academy STEM Institute (NCCASI) is currently accepting applications for the 2016-2017 school year.  A link to the application, which must be completed and submitted electronically by Monday, February 29, 2016, is posted on both the Newton College & Career Academy website and the Newton County School System homepage. 

NCCASI recruits rising freshman with a strong interest in engineering or healthcare as a future career choice.  While students may 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.

Meet the 2015-2016 Superintendent's Student Advisory Council

The purpose of the Superintendent's Student Advisory Council (SSAC) is to act on behalf of all students of the Newton County School System; SSAC representatives serve as advocates for ALL students. The SSAC collaborates to improve the educational process and school environments while focusing on the development of a "college-going" atmosphere in all schools. The SSAC aids in the communication among students, parents, and the community. SSAC members are ambassadors of the school system.
