• How to Apply 

    In order to be eligible to apply to the Academy of Engineering & Advanced Manufacturing, students must be assigned to Apex Friendship High School. The Academy has an open and equitable student recruitment process that results in a student body that reflects the demographics of the school community.  A lottery is used to determine acceptance into the Academy.  The academy is designed as a four-year high school program.  Students are expected to commit to the program for the duration of their high school experience.  The academy requires specific courses as well as an internship before high school graduation.  

    The application deadline has passed.  However, students may still apply and will be added to the bottom of the wait list. Please note that students will need two teacher recommendations.  Recommendations' contact information, including a current email address, is needed in order to complete the application. Applicants will send their teachers the link to the recommendation form via email.  We do not accept paper copies of applications or teacher recommendations.
