Choices New Energy Academy is a school-within-a-school that focuses on careers in the power industry. Students have four classes a day with the same group of academy students (for example ELA 10, World History, Algebra II, and Intro to Energy) and then two non-academy classes (PE, Chemistry, Spanish, etc...)

The academy faculty (Mrs. Barrett, Mrs. Rupley, Mr. Saltzen, and Mr. Yeroshek) work closely together and get to know our students well. In the Intro to Energy class you will learn about Wind, Solar, Water and other energy sources and build solar cars and air pressure rockets. We also go on several field trips. In our locker to the left, you can see some videos from last year.
