Instructor Opportunities

Create a course for Summer Accelerator and/or Early Accelerator

As Accelerator expands its offerings, we are seeking broad participation from the community and within NCSSM. Courses will be selected based on the following criteria:  

  • Alignment to NCSSM mission and learning competencies
  • Uniqueness 
  • Market demand
  • Cost-effectiveness (past courses costs minus salaries have ranged from $0 to $2300)
  • Scheduling and availability

There are three age groups served in Summer Accelerator:

Please give an accurate maximum number of students you can have in your class and consider if you could have more with a paid teaching assistant and note that possibility in your proposal.

Instructors of past Accelerator courses may use their previous proposal to apply, modified or not. We will include past enrollment, market research, and feedback from students and parents in our analysis. Feel free to copy and paste into the google form or email the past proposal. If no proposals are developed in high-needs strands, such as biomedical, engineering, fabrication, and coding, summer programs staff may recruit additional instructors.

If you have any questions, please contact the Summer Programs team at
