The Advanced Manufacturing program is intended for students who wish to explore the field of engineering through the design process. This program differs from the Traditional College Prep program in this manner. While the Traditional College Prep program focuses highly on the academic side, this program is more hands on and project based. 

This program follows the courses provided by Project Lead the Way (PLTW). To read more about PLTW, click HERE. Because this program follows the courses provided by Project Lead the Way, students in this program do not have much choice when it comes to scheduling as the electives are taken up with PLTW courses.
