Aviation STEM Program

At Sphinx Academy, our students are offered the unique opportunity to enroll in AOPA's aviation STEM program. 

Program content is developed by qualified and experienced education and aviation consultants who have written curriculum for NASA’s Astrophysics Science Division, the Walt Disney World Youth Experiences in Science Program, and the Challenger Center for Space Science Education.

They may choose to take the first year only for a high school integrated science credit or they may choose to go through the comprehensive four-year aviation study program. 
AOPA’s aviation STEM curriculum is the first-of-its-kind, offering four-year aviation study options aligned with rigorous math and science standards. 
Our Aviation Instructors go beyond the curriculum and offer students other aerospace and aviation-related activities, guest speakers, and field trips. 
According to a 2017 Boeing study, there’s a growing demand for aviation industry jobs. 637,000 commercial aircraft pilots; 648,000 technicians; and 839,000 cabin crew members needed globally within the next 20 years.
