The Cary Public Schools magnet programs, which are designed to provide advanced studies for promising students, encompass such areas of study as creative arts, sciences, international studies, classical studies, foreign languages, statistics, engineering, dance, and ballet. A number of schools in the area have transitioned to a year-round program, offering a more balanced approach to families, and overcoming the 'summer gap' that leaves so many Cary area students behind at the beginning of a traditional school year.
