The application process for rising sixth graders to enter the STEM Early High School for the 2015-2016 school year has officially begun.
The STEM Early High School is part of Vance County Schools. The school serves students in grades 6-8 and is located on the campus of Northern Vance High School. The STEM school focuses on science, technology, engineering and math instruction. Small classroom settings enable students to work in teams to use STEM strategies for project based learning. Students are expected to maintain a high grade point average. Each year, the school enrolls a new class for sixth graders. New students are not accepted in the seventh and eighth grades.
The deadline for applications is Friday, February 27, 2015.
Applications can be found on the Vance County Schools’ website at www.vcs.k12.nc.us. Applications also are available through the counselors at local elementary schools.
Current fifth-grade students and/or their parents should turn in completed applications to their elementary school counselors.
Students who apply will be notified of their status by April 3, 2015.
Administrators and staff members from the STEM Early High School will be visiting over the next few weeks with fifth graders and their parents in local elementary schools to share information about the school and the application process.
