Engineering Academy

Program Description
This two-year Career-Technical Education Academy combines academically competitive, college prep courses with hands-on technical studies. Students rotate through four technology areas: Computer Aided Design (CAD); electronics, robotics and programming; manufacturing processes; and polymers. College prep courses in English 11 and 12, Mathematics (Algebra II, Pre- Calculus, Calculus, A.P. Calculus AB) and Physics I and II are linked with the technology curriculum.
Various instructional approaches are used, including team teaching, work teams, self-directed studies, and project-based learning. University partners include Cleveland State University and The University of Akron. For more information visit
