Academy students are required to earn 14 “Exploration Credits” over two years that then generate one-unit of local credit for the Explorations course. Credit will be given for lectures as well as trips that take place at night, on Saturdays, on holidays, over weekends, and during breaks, and will focus on developing self-reliance, responsibility, and a greater understanding of career opportunities and of the importance of science and technology in our world. Activities earning trip equivalents are announced during the year by e-mail and on our web site. Preapproved activities can be found on the Preapproved Exploration Credit Form from the link below.
Note 1: By pre-arrangement, students may be given “trip equivalents” for travel experiences with parents or on their own. The Proposal for Exploration Credit Form is also available from the link below.
Note 2: Students are expected to complete their Explorations by the end of their sophomore year. Explorations MUST be completed before the Internship may be started. A letter jacket patch is awarded when Explorations are completed.
Distinguished Lecture and Speakers - Dates and Registration
Students can earn Exploration credits through a variety of experiences. One of those is by attending Distinguished Lectures and Speaker Presentations. After attending, the student needs to type a summary (2-4 page double spaced) of the experience that includes reflections of what was learned, and how the experience connects to what has been learned in class. The essay should then be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
