The Richmond Engineering Academy prepares students for engineering careers beginning with foundational courses in Introduction to Engineering Design (grade 9) and Engineering Principles (grade 10). Then in 11th grade students take Computer Science Software Engineering, and end in 12th grade with Civil Engineering and Architecture. In this way, they arm students with a variety of engineering skills aimed at a broad sector.
Students have the opportunity to use a 3-D printer and a full fabrication lab. The Richmond Engineering Academy uses project-based learning and is supported by English and social science teachers who teach writing and history through an engineering lens. The Richmond Engineering Academy highly values its engaged partners who help to provide students with industry feedback, interaction, and summer experiences and internships. Engineering students also have an opportunity to be part of a competitive robotics team after school.
