Welcome to the Engineering Academy
The Thompson High School Engineering Academy is designed to provide an authentic environment to help every engineering student develop the skills and mindset to pursue opportunity with confidence.
60% of collegiate freshman engineering students drop-out or change majors before the end of their sophomore year (Andrew Belasco, CollegeTransitions.com). It is fair to say that many of those students did not understand what engineering actually is, or simply were not prepared for the rigor and challenge that is inherent to engineering. The THS Engineering Academy works to correct both issues by challenging students in a blended learning environment while teaching the content and skills they will need at the next level.
Through the Academy's course work, students can learn a wide variety of high-level skills desired by colleges and employers alike, while identifying and developing their own interests.
