Application to Attend Our School

Students apply to our school by completing this online application (through Friday, Dec. 16, 2016) 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 random 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.
