Available Courses

Design & Drawing for Production - full year
Design & Drawing for Production is a full year course that will introduce the students to basic technical drawing skills and techniques. These drawing skills are necessary in the engineering, production and design fields. Since computers are used today in nearly every phase of engineering, science, business and technology, the material taught in this course will be augmented with basic activities In CAD (Computer Aided Design). Problem solving assignments will be both drawn and built in class.

Computer Graphics and Web Design - half year
This course provides students with the opportunity to integrate visual art concepts and technology. Students will use current computer software found in the Design, Publishing, Graphics Arts, and Web Design world. They will also be exposed to the basic concepts design in the areas of graphics, advising, package and web.

Video Communications - half year
This course requires students to come prepared with ideas to be presented visually. Communications through the video media is the main thrust of this course. A study of current trends, new consumer products, and career opportunities in the communication field is required. Students will be expected to view and analyze various films shown in class

AP Principles Computer Science- full year
The AP Computer Science Principles course is designed to be equivalent to a first- semester introductory college computing course. In this course, students will develop computational thinking skills vital for success across all disciplines, such as using computational tools to analyze and study data and working with large data sets to analyze, visualize, and draw conclusions from trends.

World of Technology- full year
This course will help provide students the opportunity to become engaged in critical thinking as they design and develop solutions to real world problems. Students will learn how to code using the program KidOYO and become acquainted with Microsoft office and Google drive. 3D design and printing will also be incorporated in the course.

VEX Robotics- halfyear
During this course, students will learn key STEM principles, and robotics concepts. At the culmination of this class, they will compete head-to-head against their peers in the classroom, or on the world stage in the VEX Robotics Competition, the largest and fastest growing international robotics competition for middle and high school students.
