Applicants from China:

To better facilitate the interview process for our students from China, we are excited to announce our new partnership with Vericant. Candidates who reside and attend school in China are required to interview with a representative from Vericant before scheduling an interview at North Central Texas Academy. Vericant will conduct preliminary interviews, and candidates will complete short writing samples during their visit with Vericant. Vericant does not evaluate candidates, but, rather, sends all information to North Central Texas Academy for assessment. North Central Texas Academy then will select students from among the completed Vericant interviews and determine which students will be offered a second interview with a member of the NCTA Admission staff. Please note: your application fee does not include costs associated with the Vericant interview. For interview scheduling and fee information, please visit View frequently asked questions about Vericant.
