The Aspiring Eagles Academy is a five-week residential summer program that introduces incoming freshmen to North Carolina Central University. It is an academically based enrichment program designed to prepare students to think critically, communicate effectively and solve problems. Participants who successfully complete the program will receive a minimum of six credits toward their degree.
