Academic disciplines at school

The Aviation Academy at Andrews High School is an Early College program which provides free college classes and free college textbooks for students interested in aviation or engineering careers. Students can earn an associates degree from GTCC while still in high school! Credits transfer to other colleges and universities, such as Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University or NC State. We also provide paid internships at aviation businesses, job shadowing opportunities, and FAA licenses and industry certifications, such as SolidWorks and AutoCAD. The five main tracks of the program are engineering, pilot, airframe & powerplant mechanic (A&P), avionics technician, and aviation business. The Academy prepares students for aeronautical careers through project-based learning and experimentation. Any student who has an aviation interest or plans to have an aviation career is welcome to apply!

Early College of Health Science –  The Andrews Early College of Health Science offers an opportunity for motivated students to prepare for a future career in the field of health sciences to include nursing, biotechnology, respiratory therapy, physical therapy, pharmacy or medicine to name a few. Students will have the opportunity to participate in internships through their courses to gain practical experience in their field of interest. Students in the program complete a rigorous high school curriculum during their freshman, sophomore, and junior years which prepares them to take first-year college courses, earning dual credit, as a high school senior and a college student. GCS pays for tuition and non-consumable text books and will make a reasonable effort to provide school bus transportation to campuses. Students who drive to campus are responsible for parking permits and fees. Students who complete the early college program earn an Early College diploma in addition to the GCS diploma.
