North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics (NCSSM)

  • The North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics (NCSSM) is an unparalleled opportunity for academic and personal growth, particularly for students pursuing Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) education.  At or through NCSSM, students can attend the residential program, take online courses, or attend numerous in-person or online summer programs.

    A representative from NCSSM typically visits CHS in October to meet with interested students during lunch.  Please pay attention to the Daily Announcements for that information.  You apply to (non-summer) residential or online NCSSM during your 10th grade year (some summer programs are open to younger students).
