Application Process

You will need time to submit a complete Early College application. The application includes a student-written essay, recommendations from the ELA teacher, the math teacher, and a school administrator or school counselor, plus two years of prior grades, current grades, and two years of prior standardized test scores.  



We encourage you to first explore North Wake College and Career Academy by attending and information sessions and campus tour.
