Aircraft Owners and Pilots Associations
Since 2015 the Assumption Aviation Program has provided the opportunity for students to take an advanced exploration in the areas of flying, aerospace engineering, and unmanned aircraft systems. In 2019, we were very excited to be accepted by the nationally recognized Aircraft Owners and Pilots Associations (AOPA) high school aviation science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) curriculum. The curriculum is aligned to Next Generation Science Standards and Common Core State Standards and through crosswalks can be aligned to individual state standards.
Students who apply and are accepted into the program have a unique opportunity to experience a first-of-its-kind, comprehensive, four-year aviation study program aligned with rigorous math and science standards used in approximately 30 states nationwide.
