The North Carolina Association for Scholastic Activities (NCASA) promotes academic excellence and success of North Carolina students through scholastic competitions. Newton-Conover Middle School, Discovery High School, and Newton-Conover High School are all members of the NCASA and can participate in any of the NCASA sponsored competitions throughout the year. NCASA believes that scholastic activities enrich students by satisfying their psychological and social needs. They believe that interscholastic competition motivates students to reach their full potential and teaches sportsmanship and teamwork.
The NCASA website is a growing source of information for all scholastic activities and competitions in North Carolina. We are working with existing organizations to provide information about these scholastic activities and competitions.
In addition to serving as a resource for academic activities and competitions, we have partnered with major scholastic competitions in North Carolina to present the NCASA Scholastic Cup and the NCSSM Challenge Cup. These awards are presented to the schools with the best overall performance in scholastic competitions hosted by NCASA and our Partners.
As a component of the Scholastic Cup, NCASA presents five scholastic competitions: Art Showcase, Quiz Bowl, The Quill, Twelve, and Show Choir. Other competitions are also available for our students to earn more points. Check those out here! If you are interested in supporting our students and helping them prepare for an event, please speak with a principal!
