Early College Information

As of Thursday, December 1st, 2022 students can apply to Agriculture and Science Early College (ASEC), Crossroads Arts and Science Early College, and/or Collaborative College for Technology and Leadership (CCTL).    Below are links to each school's website where the application is located: 

Students only need to complete one application regardless of which schools (either one, two, or all three) they want to apply to attend.  On each website under the "Application" section, there is a three-step process that students/parents must follow to complete the entire application process.  Teachers are aware that students will be emailing them to request recommendations.   Ms. Whittenburg, our SBMS data manager, also knows that parents will be emailing her to request records be released to Iredell Statesville Schools.
