COVINGTON, Ga. - The Newton College & Career Academy STEM Institute is currently accepting applications for the 2018-2019 school year.  A link to the application, which must be completed and submitted electronically by Tuesday, Feb. 27, is posted on both the Newton College & Career Academy website and the Newton County School System website.

NCCASI recruits rising freshman with a strong interest in engineering or healthcare as a future career choice.  While students may vary in their background and represent the diversity of Newton County’s population, they are similar in their motivation to achieve academically and in their determination to prepare for professional careers and positions of leadership. Students will achieve this through exposure to a unique curriculum combined with project-based/problem-based learning.  

NCCASI will host an Open House on Thursday, Feb. 8 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. to provide more information to students and parents interested in the program. NCCASI will review all applications submitted by the deadline. All applicants that submit an application, will receive a confirmation email as well as a link to schedule an interview. Applicants who meet the eligibility criteria must participate in an interview to be scheduled March 3-24. After the interview process is complete, NCCASI will mail letters to all candidates selected as well as those placed on a wait list on April 12.

Those interested in applying are encouraged to attend the STEM Open House on Thursday, Feb. 8. For more information about the STEM Institute or the application process, please contact Mr. Scott Rains at
