Pre-Engineering Academy

Pre-Engineering prepares high school students for success in colleges of engineering.

Math and science are combined with engineering-related classes to provide you with academic preparation and an understanding of engineering to determine your interest in pursuing engineering as a career. If you choose to attend as a junior and senior, you will take the PLTW Pre-Engineering pathway. If you attend for three years, and enroll as a sophomore, you will take the Advanced PLTW Pre-Engineering Academy which includes an extra year of curriculum.

Graduates from the Academy should be planning to obtain a college degree in an engineering discipline.
