Admissions Information & Application Requirements

Diverse Learners

Our scholars bring their own uniqueness and individuality into our academic learning environment. We provide k-12 online and in-person academies with a flexible learning environment and teachers at the utmost professional level.

Many of our Pre-Professional Virtual Pre-Professional Scholars Academy are simultaneously enrolled in Cary Ballet Conservatory’s Professional Training Program or other Professional Training Programs. Our Albemarle-area scholars reside in central North Carolina, and our virtual classroom scholars reside in a larger geographical area within and beyond the state. We are proud to have a wide variety of socio-economic, racial, ethnic, and religious backgrounds. We celebrate our differences and use our experiences to contribute to the perspectives of others in our scholarly community.  Contact us to go through the scholars academy admissions process today!
