The LCTC STEM Academy began in 2009. The Academy utilizes Project Lead The Way,, & Alabama State Department of Education engineering curriculum for High School Students. Students can choose from many different Engineering Academy courses that focus on teaching problem solving & utilizing the engineering design process.  


 The LCTC STEM Academy goal is to prepare students for the increasing technological demands of the global environment. The students enrolled in the program will utilize math, science, technical writing, and computer skills as they explore different areas of engineering. This program serves as a platform for students who wish to pursue an engineering or technical degree after high school. 


 TSA is the programs career and technical student organization. TSA serve as a means to enhance classroom instruction while helping students develop leadership abilities, expand workplace-readiness skills, and broaden opportunities for personal and professional growth.
