Pre-Engineering Academy

This two-year academy provides a unique learning environment to high school students interested in pursuing a career in engineering. Students will learn how engineers apply math, science and technology to solve problems.

Students in the Pre-Engineering pathway will study pre-engineering through Project-Lead-the-Way curriculum that introduces them to concepts and principles of engineering with a strong emphasis on the development of problem solving skills.  The students will learn how engineers apply math, science, and technology to solve problems.  The curriculum has been developed with the goal of preparing students to successfully advance to the college level.  Students will take five Project-Lead-the-Way courses and three advanced science and math courses as listed in the curriculum below.
