Why does the Center for Advanced Studies need community support?

Wheeler High School – a unique learning environment

The Center for Advanced Studies in Science, Math and Technology has gained national recognition for its innovative programs and advanced curriculum. Highly competitive, the Center attracts students from through out Cobb County. Fully integrated with Wheeler High School, the magnet program helps the entire high school by allowing all students the opportunity to take science, math and technology classes that would not otherwise be available. Bringing 400 high achieving students into the school community has also enabled Wheeler to dramatically increase the number of and quality of extracurricular academic clubs.

Wheeler High School, a diverse community with students representing over 61 nationalities, provides a unique educational environment that allows students from a broad cross-section of economic and cultural backgrounds to learn both in the classroom and from one another.

The Center for Advanced Studies – a high-tech incubator

In order to stretch our students academically, adapt and & innovate in the classroom, provide advanced training for our teachers, inspire our student leaders, and keep abreast of changing technologies, we need the support of the community. The Center is nurturing Georgia’s next generation of scientists, researchers, engineers, software designers, physicians, roboticists, and other technology leaders.

The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit and contributions are tax-deductible as provided by law.
