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.

Middle schoolers visit the Charlotte Urban Design Center to get ideas for their Cities of the Future engineering design challenge.

Our micro school is a STEM-centered hybrid program designed for 1st through 10th-grade students.

We host three 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.

Classes take place in Charlotte, NC.


** Our Friday Micro School is full for the Fall 2022 session. Winter 2023 enrollment will open in November. Please join our email list, located on our Home Page, to learn about upcoming classes.**
