I’m sure GCS appreciates the nice plug from CBS-2 on the new aviation magnet program Andrews H.S. is about to roll out. Check this recent report out:

High Point, NC — Some select students in Guilford County will receive a unique opportunity this coming fall. The district will open “The Andrews Aviation Academy” to ninth and tenth graders.

Ed Frye, Chairman of Transportation Systems at GTCC, can’t wait to get the Academy open.

“This is going to give these students something really cool. For the first time, there’s going to be a career path in the field of aviation that’s been around for a long time in the health field and automotive field and computers and all those kinds of things.”

Beginning in the ninth grade, students enrolled in the new aviation academy at Andrews High School will see potential high-paying careers take off.

Guilford County’s Director of Magnet and Choice Schools says it’s a great way to tie in with the notion Guilford County is an aerotropolis.

The students will continue taking core classes. But teachers will expose them to aviation-related lessons. After the first two years, the students will take classes at the GTCC facility at PTI.

“They’ll get a choice when they get out here of being in management programs, career pilot programs, aircraft mainetnence programs or structures programs.” Frye told WFMY News 2. “We can take them from interest in the eighth grade all the way to advanced degrees in a four year university just by staying right here in town.”

Burkes agrees.

“The most important thing to me is we have students who graduate from high school exposed to exciting career opportunities.”

The application deadline for the Andrews Aviation Academy is March 21 at 5:00pm. Click here to print the application.
