Pioneer Scholars Application Open through 4/1/2021

February 14, 2021

The Pioneer Scholars program is now accepting applications for students who will enroll in the fall of 2021! Open to rising first through eighth grade students, Pioneer Scholars ensures that elementary and middle school students are building academic skills, achieving in school, and laying the foundation for future college success. The application window will remain open until April 1, 2021. 

Applications will be reviewed after the application window closes, and student interviews will be held in late April and May. Students who most closely meet the admissions profile are considered the strongest candidates and will be contacted for an interview. Families will be notified of student selections by mid-July. The application process is a competitive one.

Applications can be picked up at the Emily K Center or downloaded from the website. Please call 919-680-0308 prior to coming to the Center to ensure the building is open.  To download an application, please click here and navigate to the ‘How to Apply’ tab.
