With hands-on projects, unique field trips, engaging guest speakers, and internship opportunities, join the Stellar Academy of Engineering for a high school engineering education like no other.
The Stellar Academy of Engineering was formed in partnership with Stellar, a fully integrated firm focused on design, engineering, construction, and mechanical services worldwide, headquartered in Jacksonville. Stellar recognizes the need to increase the quality, diversity and number of students prepared to pursue a career in engineering. Students benefit from this unique relationship through the real-world projects and perspective these engineers bring to the classroom. Stellar and other business partners provide valuable work-based learning opportunities such as internships and job shadowing. We have had Academy interns go on to be hired by business partners to start working in engineering firms while going to college.
In addition to strong partners in our community, we offer Academy students opportunities to prepare for the engineering industry via field trips, guest speakers, lunch and learns, and industry certification exams.
