PLTW as an Academy
PLTW is recognized as an academy and requires an application for continuation in the program. As in the past, you can still take PLTW in tandem with another Academy. Just be aware that this may cause scheduling conflicts and you will likely sacrifice a lunch period in that year.
Applications are done in February and acceptance letters are sent out (via email for PLTW applicants) in early March. Check your school email for your letter at that time and confirm receipt in the email. If accepted, sign up for the next PLTW course with your counselor for the upcoming school year...and start engineering greatness!
Join the PLTW Google Classroom for updates and announcements.
Class code for PLTW is frlwubv and is posted in all PLTW rooms.
Be a leader in Project Lead the Way!
