A variety of programs will be offered, including a focus on the topics below:

Digital Learning

Our students live in a digital world, with the ability to contact anyone, anywhere, anytime. How can we catch up with them? We'll introduce you to digital learning and find common ground with your students.

Early Grades Literacy

Participate in sessions packed with hands-on activities that reinforce essential literacy skills of K–5 students. Encourage literacy through science, the arts and social studies.

Beginning Teachers

Strengthen your knowledge base and classroom expertise in your first three years of teaching.

Support and Planning Teams

We offer educators an opportunity to meet at Cullowhee or Ocracoke in a residential setting devoid of distraction to create and advance departmental-, school- or district-wide projects. Teachers, administrators, central office personnel and district coordinators are welcome.

Other offerings will focus on math, science, social studies and more.

NCCAT served more than 100 school districts in the state last year. In our nearly thirty-year history, NCCAT is best known for teachers who learn by doing and work collaboratively to discover education insights—through residential, online and school-based experiences. This knowledge then spreads to classrooms across the state to help children achieve more. 


Increasing teacher effectiveness is fundamental to improving public education. NCCAT provides teachers with new knowledge, skills, teaching methods, best practices and information to take back to their classrooms.
