The T-Tech Academy was developed to bring relevance to the classroom and provide a pathway to college and career success. Students participating in this California Partnership Academy may take four UC approved elective courses that utilize the Project Lead the Way curriculum. Students showcase their academic knowledge and technical skills through participation in the UCI Energy Invitational, an engineering competition where high school and college teams design and build a vehicle to travel as far as possible on one dollar’s worth of energy. Grade point averages and college acceptance rates for students in the T-Tech Academy are consistently higher than other students at the high school.
