Lake Orion High School Launches Exciting, New Pre-Engineering Program
At the May 28 School Board meeting, Lake Orion High School's principal provided an exciting overview of the new pre-engineering program being launched this fall. Also in attendan...ce and speaking were representatives from Oakland Schools and engineer mentors from the school's robotics team. More than 300 Lake Orion students have already shown interest in the multi-year program, which promises to address current engineering trends and needs.

The pre-engineering program will be a key component to the engineering/manufacturing/industrial technology career pathway for students, with an emphasis on design, theory and advanced engineering principles. It also will include significant hands-on work in robotics and fabrication. Principal Hawley said it will meet all state standards for such pre-engineering programs, including two tracks to support the needs of students who want to attend a two-year community college or trade school to become technicians or those who want to prepare for studying in traditional, four-year university programs. Advanced math and science courses also are being built into the program's curriculum. Existing LOHS classroom and lab facilities will be used.

This summer, the high school will be establishing a formal advisory group for the program, plus finalizing partnerships with local colleges and/or universities for guidance and dual-enrollment opportunities for our students.
