The Engineering Academy offers two specialized programs: FIRST Robotics and Square-One Innovative Vehicle Design. All programs provide practical experience in the most contemporary career fields.

Students solve real-world problems using a lab setting. Academy students can also apply their skills in competition. These students build a robot every year with the assistance of parents and engineers for competition against other schools from around the state. The Innovative Vehicle Design Program offers students the challenge to build an electric car for annual competition.

The Engineering Academy offers opportunities for special field trips,  job shadowing, paid summer internships and community service. Students are required to exhibit leadership and improvement throughout their high school experience, and participate in one of the specialized programs.
