Engineering"Where Learning Meets the Future"
The New Egypt High School Warrior Engineering Academy is designed to enable students to gain an understanding of the skills to use creative and systems thinking in the multiple facets of an engineering career. Warrior Engineering Academy students will be placed on a four-year academic pathway that will be innovative while addressing “College and Career Readiness” skills. They will gain knowledge in this particular field of study and cover all high school prerequisites for acceptance into competitive post-secondary institutions. This program will empower students in the development of the key skills; critical thinking/problem solving, research, reading, writing, speaking/presenting, and teamwork, and include subsets of these skills, such as analyzing, reasoning, negotiating and questioning. The rigorous courses (some achieving college credit) will enable students to apply these skills while identifying how the material connects to other academic subjects. Warrior Engineering Academy students will gain knowledge and skills that are relevant to a range of careers.
Students who are accepted into the Warrior Engineering Academy will:
- Tailor their elective choices to focus on Engineering.
- Require a minimum of seven academy electives completed or enrolled by February of Senior year.
