About the Academy

  • Middle school is a time for exploration and discovery for students, and the Technology and Industrial Engineering Academy gives them an opportunity to learn about exciting career possibilities in the areas of industry, computer science, and engineering.

    Students lead their own discovery by engaging in activities that help them to learn about computer science, engineering, and other areas.  Activities relate to web development, interactive games and animation, the design process, and computer programming. Through the Academy, students begin to understand how exploration, creativity, and innovation are important to whatever career path they choose to take.  

    The following high school classes are offered to students: Math I, Spanish I, World History, and Earth and Environmental Science.  These courses give students an opportunity to see what it is like to take high school level courses and prepare them for what’s ahead.  This program creates a pathway for students to participate in the Technology and Industrial Engineering Academy at Bessemer City High School.

    Students from outside the Bessemer City attendance area who will be in the sixth grade for the 2024-2025 school year may apply for this program. A lottery process will be used to determine the 60 sixth grade students who will attend (from outside the Bessemer City attendance area).
