STEM-Centered Micro School.

What is a Micro School?

A micro school is a small community of students and educators offering more personalized and flexible learning than a traditional private school.


UNCC Professor Brett Tempest talks to students about civil engineering and bridge design in Peru.

Our micro school is a STEM-centered hybrid program that offers a variety of online and in-person enrollment options for kindergarten through 8th grade students.

We host three 9-week sessions per year: Fall, Winter and Spring. In each session, we present core science and engineering, alongside global studies and world history, in a fun and engaging format.

In-person classes take place in Charlotte, NC.

Students can (and do!) join our online classes from anywhere in the world.
