If you said “YES” to any of the above then the Engineering ACES – small learning community is for YOU!
The Engineering ACES(Architecture, Computer Technology and Engineering Sciences) Small Learning Community at Newtown High School provides students with skills that can lead toward a career in Architecture, Engineering, Landscaping, Civil Engineering, Interior Design, Construction, as well as A+ Certification (Computer Repair Specialist), a Network Cabling Specialist (Telecommunications), Electronics, Robotics, Financial Management, and other technical areas.
Students will take part in the “blending” process, combining Secondary Education (high school), leading toward a Post-Secondary Education (college) and Career (work) with our focus being geared towards each student’s success.
The Engineering ACES Small Learning Community at Newtown High School is dedicated to preparing our tech students for college, as well as a future career in technology-related fields of study.
Our new SLC courses include SolidWorks with 3-D printing and Intro. to Technology. We introduce young students to various technology-related subjects including; Energy and Power, Top Down Design, Weldments, Surfacing and Molds, and Construction in the 21stcentury workplace.
Students will learn the skills and requirements that can lead toward a career in Architecture, Engineering, Landscaping, Civil Engineering, Interior Design, Construction, as well as A+ Certification (Computer Repair specialist), Network Cabling Specialist (Telecommunications), SolidWorks 3D modeling and printing, Electronics, Robotics, Financial Management and other technical areas.
Our Architecture Program is State approved for the CTE (Career and Technical Education) sequence. Our articulation agreement allows students to obtain 6 or more College credits at Queensboro Community College while attending high school.
The Architecture, Computer Technology and Engineering Science “Small Learning Community” is a personalized program. You will be working “first-hand” with licensed, industry certified, professional instructors, and using state-of-the-art equipment.
Last year, many of the students in this program graduated with their class, on time, as well as became recipients of scholarships.
We offer our students the NOCTI (National Occupational Competency Testing Institute) exam Architectural Drafting Assessment. Other students have passed the nationally recognized A+ Certification Exam to repair computers. A large majority of our Network Cabling class passed the Network Cabling Specialist Exam. Several of our Architectural students have been awarded an internship in the industry with the School Construction Authority. We have also been able to place many of our students in paid internships positions. In addition, some of our students have completed summer internships with major corporations in the technology industry.
We want you to be part of the Architecture, Computer Technology and Engineering Science Small Learning Community. You will graduate with a Pre-Engineering endorsed Advanced Regents Diploma from Newtown High School and take your first steps toward a successful future.
+ All students must complete required English, Foreign Language, Math, Science and Social Studies courses.
