High School






CMS is proud to introduce the Hawthorne Academy of Health Sciences, a county-wide magnet high school dedicated to the field of medicine.  A $15,000,000 campus renovation, central location, and strong industry partnerships with the National Academy Foundation, North Carolina New Schools, Project Lead the Way, and Carolinas HealthCare Systems have positioned the Hawthorne Academy of Health Sciences as Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools' premier county-wide health sciences magnet. 

The academy team offers programs of study that focus on general medicine, nursing, emergency services, and pharmacy technologies.  These rigorous programs prepare high school students for success in college with a relevance that addresses growing workforce shortages in healthcare. 


NOTE:  Second opening for lottery application begins March 9th and ends on June 5th at 10 pm. 

To apply, please visit the Magnet Department's website.
