The Academy of Engineering & Automation (AOEA) is a four-year career academy affiliated with the National Academy Foundation (NAF). It is a smaller learning community in which a cohort of students have core and CTE classes together. Academy teachers share the cohort students and work together to integrate Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math into their curricula as well as develop interdisciplinary projects.
The National Academy Foundation (NAF) is a non-profit organization established in 1989. The mission of the National Academy Foundation (NAF) is to sustain a national network of career academies to support the development of America's youth toward personal and professional success in high school, in higher education, and throughout their careers. NAF Academies function as dynamic partner-ships and collaborations between schools, teachers, administrators, business volunteers, and an active Advisory Board led by industry professionals. www.naf.org
