The educational infrastructure to support a growing region
Educational resources in North Carolina’s Eastern Region are strong from pre-school to grad school. The public school systems in the Region offer sound, well-regarded programs for children through twelfth grade. High schools offer - in addition to traditional college prep - not only a wide variety of vocational training, but also eleven specially designed STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) centers in the region to promote learning in these critical disciplines.
There are also 11 campuses of the nationally recognized North Carolina Community College System in the Region. The Region is home to East Carolina University (with its school of medicine and more than 25,000 students), as well as to a host of other smaller universities and colleges. There are a significant number of specialized educational programs as well - such as the Duke University Nicholas School of Environment and Earth Sciences and the NC Aviation Alliance Advanced Machining Center among many others.
It all adds up to a solid educational infrastructure for growing business.
