About the Academy Pathways: Our Linked Learning Academies combine strong academics, demanding technical education, and real world experience. Students gain an advantage in high school, post secondary education and future careers. Students compete in competitions such as robotics and app design, go on field trips to interact with industry professionals, and get involved in real-world projects and problems through WBL. Students gain access to several classes that are not open to other students and some AP classes before other students*
All students begin the 2017-2018 school year in Introduction to Design (IED), a UC-approved art & design course that covers the use of engineering tools, sketching, measuring, 3D modeling, 3D printing, and the fundamentals of design. From here they can choose one of two academies:
The first is the Academy of Computer and Engineering Sciences (ACES), which centers on computer science, game design, and computer hardware engineering. This pathway includes 2 AP courses : AP CSP and AP CSA. Please click on the ACES link on the left for more information.
The second is Robotics Aerospace and Design (RAD), which focuses on engineering fundamentals, physics, aerospace, and mechanical engineering. Please click on the RAD link on the left for more information.
