The North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics (NCSSM) is a two-year residential school that accepts a limited number of students who excel in science and math to complete their junior & senior years at one of its campuses--the original campus in Durham and a new campus that opened this school year in Morganton.

The NCSSM held its graduation for the class of 2023 the last weekend in May.   A number of students from Lincoln, Gaston, Catawba & Cleveand counties were among the grads.  Here's a list including the area school from which they came:


Catawba
Whitney Elizabeth Drummond - Bandys High School
Kenneth Lee - Bunker Hill High School
Nathan Connor Bost - Discovery High School
Hayden Dakota Caldwell - Discovery High School
Calla Lily Nguyen Salvador - Fred T. Foard High School
Meredith Taylor Smith - Fred T. Foard High School
Kayla Carin Ruff - Hickory High School
Carter Addison Schrag - Hickory High School
Aydan Adler Reep - St. Stephens High School
Jacob Patrick Van Meter - University Christian High School

Sophie Grace Davis - Lincoln Charter School

Madeline Anne Wootton - Lincoln Charter School
Zachary Robert Sanetick - North Lincoln High School

Gaston

Jayden Pierce Webb - Highland School of Technology

A total of 344 students from across North Carolina graduated this year in Durham.

Students with high abilities in math and science began their studies at their local high school, then as sophomores applied to the selective world-class public high school with statewide reach. Those accepted lived on the Durham campus in dormitories during their junior and senior years, taking high-level classes in not just science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, but also in the humanities.

A second NCSSM campus opened this year in Morganton with an inaugural class of 150 juniors, who this fall will return as seniors and become the first graduating class to study on that campus. Rising sophomores statewide may now apply for the residential program on either campus, or both, and/or to the NCSSM Online program. The state of North Carolina and private, philanthropic donors make all the programs possible at no cost to the students and their families for tuition, room, board, or books. 

Only about 25% of those who apply for the school, considered one of the best in the nation, get accepted.
