Welcome to the Center for Advanced Studies

The Center is a specialized magnet program offering Cobb County high school students a unique and advanced curriculum in science, math, and technology. The Center for Advanced Studies opened in the fall of 2000 in a new 33,000 square foot facility designed especially for the program and located on the campus of Wheeler High School in Marietta, Georgia. Instruction in the Center is provided by a dedicated faculty of content specialists and supplemented by the latest state-of-the-art technology and resources. In addition, most magnet teachers have or are working towards the gifted teacher certification offered by the state of Georgia and many hold advanced degrees.

The Center attracts high achieving students from the Cobb County School District who are interested in science, math and technology. Interested students apply to the program during the fall of their eighth grade year and go through a competitive admissions process which includes standardized tests, teacher recommendations and evaluation of past school performance. There is great community interest in the magnet program from middle school students and parents as the advanced curriculum is not available in other public or private schools in the area. In addition to advanced classes, the Center makes use of the latest instructional technology and has developed partnerships with Georgia Tech and other nearby universities in an effort to keep students & teachers current with developing technologies. The program offers a wide array of Advanced Placement classes and post AP classes as well as an off-campus in-depth scientific research internship program for seniors.

Recent graduates are attending top schools including MIT, Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Duke and the honors programs at UGA and Georgia Tech.

The Center for Advanced Studies is a member of the National Consortium for Specialized Secondary Schools of Mathematics, Science and Technology and the Magnet Schools of America.
