North Carolina School of Science and Math

  • North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics is the nation's first public residential high school focused on science, technology, engineering, and math.
    We challenge and inspire talented students from across North Carolina through a residential campus, online program, summer STEM enrichment programs, and distance offerings for schools and educators.


    Summer Ventures isn't your average summer experience. Good thing, because you're not average.

    Summer Ventures in Science and Mathematics is a no-cost, state-funded program for academically talented North Carolina students who aspire to careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
    As a rising high school junior or senior, you live on a college campus for four weeks in the summer and conduct research around topics of your interest — while enjoying the company of like-minded peers.
