Scotlandville Academy of Engineering earns model award

The National Academy Foundation recently awarded the Scotlandville Magnet High School Academy of Engineering with a certification of Model Membership Status on its annual Academy Assessment.
 
NAF is an acclaimed network of career-themed academies that opens doors for underserved high school students to viable careers like engineering, and a model school meets the highest proportion of standards and has completed the program with at least one graduating class. It exemplifies the highest level of fidelity to the NAF model standards.
 
The Foundation’s letter of congratulations stated, “This school is a shining example of what can be accomplished when districts and schools move to a culture of linking education and business to benefit students. NAF will bring their efforts and success to the attention of business, philanthropic and policy leaders.” In addition, the Foundation will highlight the Scotlandville Academy at its annual July conference in Orlando.
 
Academies of Engineering (AOEs) are small learning communities that provide high school students with the Science, Technology, Math and Engineering (STEM) skills required to succeed in college engineering study. For 30 years, NAF has refined a proven model that provides young people access to industry-specific curricula, work-based learning experiences, and relationships with business professionals. This year, NAF academies will serve more than 62,000 students in more than 500 academies in 39 states, the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
