Pre-Engineering Academy 
(2-3 year program requiring admission)


Project Lead the Way (PLTW) utilizes a six-course sequence. The sequence is designed to help students explore “high tech” related careers in the engineering field and to prepare students for entry level engineering-technology jobs (advanced manufacturing) as well as associate’s and bachelor’s degree programs. Each class is taught in a laboratory setting using state-of-the art technology equipment and software. Instruction is approximately one-third theory and two-thirds application, sometimes involving mentors from industry and colleges. Class activities focus on problem solving through project-based learning, which requires students to work in teams to generate solutions.

 Students who participate and/or complete the first four courses of the sequence as outlined below beginning with Honors Introduction to Engineering Design will have the option to earn college credit, when possible, through articulation agreements, offering a seamless link between high school and college. The course sequence utilizing Project Lead the Way will include the following courses:

 Pre-Engineering Program

Year 1 – Honors Engineering Design
Honors Principles of Engineering

Year 2 – Honors Computer Integrated Manufacturing
Honors Digital Electronics

 Year 3 – Honors Aerospace Engineering 
Honors Engineering Design and Development
