Godby Career Academy
The Godby Career Academy is the collective effort of the school, community, local business, higher education, and government leaders. Career academies aim to build long-term relationships between students and teachers, developing peer support and improving achievement through highly focused small learning communities operating within the infrastructure of a traditional public school.The Academy of Aviation (AOA) has been established to teach the fundamental concepts and approaches of aerospace engineering, historical developments in aviation and aviation regulations and safety. Students will have the opportunity to use and operate Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS’s) with an emphasis on operations. Coursework prepares students to integrate robotic technology into hardware and software regimes of unmanned aviation. Students have the opportunity to earn multiple dual enrollment college credits in the area of aviation.
The Academy of Information Technology (AOIT) offers an honors- weighted and advanced placement integrated program, linking the core academic subjects to information technology and computer content. The AOIT combines college preparatory curriculum with an information technology career oriented study track. The program also prepares students to test for numerous industry certifications while still in high school. When students graduate from the AOIT program, they are prepared to enter both the traditional four-year university and join the work force.
The Academy of Computer Integrated Manufacturing (AOCIM) provides students with a foundation of knowledge and technically oriented experiences in the study of the applications of engineering and its effect upon society. The AOCIM mission is to provide students with a foundation of knowledge and technically oriented experiences in the study of the applications of engineering and its effect upon society. To accomplish this goal, Computer Integrated Manufacturing has a hands-on project driven curriculum that focuses on the fundamental concepts of engineering design analysis, robotics and the production processes and systems used in the automated manufacturing industry. This program emphasizes certified transferable skills that are nationally recognized and stresses the understanding and demonstration of the technological tools, machines, instruments, materials, processes and systems in the advanced manufacturing business and industry. This course also applies principles of robotics and automation and builds on computer solid modeling skills that they will develop in the initial course of the program, Introduction to Engineering. Students also use computer numerical controlled equipment to produce actual models of their three- dimensional designs. The content and activities will also include the study of safety, quality assurance and leadership skills.
