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*.
*PLTW = Project Lead The Way STEM curriculum.
**All AP classes are contingent on students meeting prerequisites. ACES students that meet prerequisites get preferred admission to AP CSP and AP CSA.
Students will choose one of two academies for their high school years. Students must commit to a minimum of two years in the pathway they choose.
Academy of Computer and Engineering Sciences (ACES): ACES centers on computer science, game design, and computer hardware engineering. If students have minimal computer programming experiences, they will begin in Computer Science Essentials (CSE). Advanced students may take APCSP during their freshman year. This pathway includes 3-4 AP courses: AP CSP, AP Seminar and AP Research. Please click the ACES link on the left for more information.
Robotics Aerospace and Design (RAD): RAD focuses on engineering fundamentals, physics, aerospace, and mechanical engineering. Students will begin with Introduction to Design (IED), UC-approved art & design course that covers the use of engineering tools, sketching, measuring, 3D modeling, 3D printing, and the fundamentals of design. Sophomores will take Principles of Engineering and Juniors will take Aerospace Engineering. This pathway includes 1-2 AP courses: AP Seminar and AP Research.
