  • The Academy of Technology & Advanced Manufacturing

    The Academy of Technology and Advanced Manufacturing(ATAM) is an immersive, smaller learning community within Cary High School. ATAM will focus on developing skills in technology, design, advanced manufacturing, and engineering. The program is a four-year course of study where students take core and technical classes together as a cohort. 

    The academy will prepare students for the many diverse career opportunities in today’s growing technology, engineering, and advanced manufacturing fields. Students will be equipped with the personal, analytical, technical, teamwork, communication, and employability skills necessary to be successful in college and today’s workforce.  ATAM students will be given unique learning experiences that provide them with access to industry-specific curricula, work-based learning experiences, and relationships with business professionals. 

    The learning environment will be collaborative and fun. All students will be supported to ensure academic success as they progress through the four-year academy in grade level cohorts. Project-based learning, interdisciplinary projects, and STEM principles will be integrated across technical and core courses. Students will complete a minimum of four technical courses in one of two career specific tracks of technology or advanced manufacturing, as well as the NC Standard Course of Study. 

    Integral to the academy’s four-year course of study will be a comprehensive employability  and soft skills program. Academy students will participate in presentations, communication, team building, resume writing, mock interviews, networking events and other activities to prepare them for success after high school.

    Wake County Career Academies value leadership, supportiveness, empowerment, and community.
