Partnership Brings Laser Photonics to Wekiva High School

Orange County Public Schools, Northrop Grumman Corporation’s Laser Systems business unit and Valencia Community College publicly announced the formation of Florida’s first high school Laser Photonics Academy, at Wekiva High School.

The Wekiva High School Laser Photonics Career Academy enables students to combine academic course work with practical hands-on learning experiences using state-of-the-art equipment. It will prepare students for a career in laser photonics. The academy is open to students who maintain at least a 2.5 grade point average and allows them to earn 48 college credits if they successfully complete the four-year program. Students will have the flexibility to enter the workforce right after graduation, or continue their formal education at the college level.
