Application to Attend Our School

Information Sessions  Please note our school does not provide tours.  Prospective students and parents are welcome to attend our planned information sessions or open houses.


Students apply to our school by completing this online application (available in November) and are ultimately selected through a randomized process much like a lottery. 


Applicants should…

  • reside in Wake County, NC
  • possess a strong interest in one or more of the STEM fields of study
  • possess a strong work ethic
  • want to go to college
  • possess promising academic potential
  • want to attend a small school and is willing to embrace opportunities unique to our program
  • be willing to do without the traditional “large high school experience” including arts courses and large social events

Applications help us determine if students are a good fit for a program of this rigor, but selection is ultimately made through a randomized process. Students must have completed an application to be eligible for selection.

NOTE REGARDING STUDENTS COMING FROM PRIVATE, CHARTER, OR HOME SCHOOLS:


To start an application for the Wake STEM Early College High School, the applying student must be pre-registered with the Wake County Public School System.  Parents may pre-register their child at the Wake County Public School System Office of Student Assignment at 5625 Dillard Dr., Cary, NC, starting on November 9, 2015.
