Academy

In operation since 1990, the objective of the Delaware Aerospace Academy is to provide hands-on training and experiences in aerospace-related activities and fields. Throughout the week, girls and boys in grades 1 - 10 are continually challenged to think, design, solve, build, and work cooperatively. All academies are designed to integrate the study of science, technology, engineering and mathematics using Earth and Space themes as the unifying framework.

Talented experts in a cooperative learning experience supplement our excellent staff of teachers and young people. Lessons focus on applied learning through problem solving. Students learn in small groups, emphasizing the teamwork necessary in the real world.
