To help prepare Century High School students for college and careers of the future, Century has two new Academies. The Digital Media and Arts Academy integrates 21st Century skills into student's standard based core curriculum using Art and Digital Media themes. The Engineering Design Academy will help develop student's academic skills in engineering and science while they develop their technical skills to better prepare students for 21st Century careers and jobs. Century offers Engineering courses in Biotechnology and Introduction to Engineering using Project Lead the Way Curriculum. As part of Century's Academy Exploration Class, we are using Paxton Patterson Careers Plus Lab as a foundation. This class introduces students to 7 different areas: Robotics and Automation, Materials Science, Alternative Energy, Environmental Technology, Architecture and Construction. slide show
