The Trumbull Career & Technical Center (TCTC) announces its plans to introduce the Early Innovators Academy opening fall of 2022. The academy offers project-based career exploration courses for ninth and tenth graders. Instruction will concentrate on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).
The Early Innovators Academy will accept 50-ninth grade students for the 2022-2023 school year from all 20 partner school districts. Acceptance will be determined on a first-come, first-serve basis, and enrollment will open in early December 2021.
Students that attend the TCTC and its Early Innovators Academy remain a student of their current school district. Continued participation in home school extracurricular activities, sports, and events is encouraged.
“Innovation is at the forefront of career and technical education, and we are constantly looking for ways to ensure student success now and after graduation. The academy will allow us to expose students at a younger age to the instructional methods offered at a career-technical school,” says TCTC superintendent Jason Gray. “With the introduction of this academy, ninth and tenth-grade students will receive practical, hands-on learning experiences that align with the demands of the future economy. These learning opportunities will ultimately help students develop a greater understanding of where their professional interest areas lie.”
Students interested in attending the Trumbull Career & Technical Center’s Early Innovators Academy for the 2022-2023 school year, can learn more about the school during a parent night on Thursday, November 4 at 6:00 pm.
