One of our main goals with the academy is to educate the students on the wide array of post-secondary options available to them. While the focus of the academy is on transportation, science, and engineering, students will also have the opportunity to learn about other, non-related fields. Another main goal is to strengthen the leadership qualities within each student, so that he or she can return with a stronger sense of self, and a more focused vision for the future.
