For Parents

  • Supporting your student in ENC STEM

    • There are many ways to support your student as he/she applies and attends ENC STEM. Some of those ways include:

      • Encouraging student to finish application: Starting an application is easy, but finishing it can sometimes be challenging. Keep track of your student’s application progress and make sure he/she finishes before the deadline.

      • Signing documents upon acceptance: Your signature on certain forms is needed upon acceptance to ENC STEM and those forms will be available online, so make sure you keep an eye out for an email with further instructions.

      • Attending events: Our first event of the summer is Kickoff. Here, you will have a chance to meet some of the instructors that will be teaching your students at ENC STEM. You will also be able to ask any questions you may have about the program and enjoy some food while your student participates in some of the fun activities. Our other event is Community Night. Here, you will be able to get a glimpse of what your student has been working on during the summer, learn more about the sleepaway portion of the program at NCSSM, and ask any remaining questions. We end Community Night with shoutouts, as we do every day at ENC STEM, and we shout out the people showing specific character traits that help make a good leader.

      • Providing a ride for your student: While we provide buses for students to ride for the duration of the program, there are a couple of days during which your student will need a ride to a given location. For the field trip, we have our buses stop at designated stops across the areas that we service. Your student will need a ride to the closest stop to you the morning of the field trip, and will need to be picked up later in the day at that same stop. Students who earn the week at NCSSM will also need to be dropped off at Northampton County High School on Sunday, July 18 and picked up on Friday, July 13.
