NCCASI recruits rising freshman with a strong interest in engineering or healthcare sciences 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 advanced curriculum combined with project-based/ problem-based learning, FLEX days, internships, and capstone projects.

NCCASI will host an Open House on Tuesday, January 24th from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm to provide more information to students and parents interested in the program. NCCASI will review all applications submitted by the deadline of March 3rd. All applicants who meet the eligibility criteria will receive a confirmation email as well as a link to schedule an interview. All interviews will be held in-person and are to be scheduled on March 17th or March 18th, 2023. After the interview process is complete, NCCASI will email letters to all candidates selected on April 14, 2023. The total number of students being accepted into the 2023-2024 STEM Freshman Cohort has been limited to 56.
