Career and Technical Education (CTE) of St. Johns County

Stellar Academy of Engineering

The Stellar Academy of Engineering was formed in partnership with Stellar, a global firm focused on design, engineering, construction, and mechanical services headquartered in Jacksonville, Florida. This rigorous program is designed to prepare students for high-skill, high-wage, high-demand careers in multiple fields of engineering.

The Stellar Academy of Engineering is the only academy in St. Johns County which allows students to explore multiple disciplines in the industry. Students are taught by instructors via hands-on  experience, using the latest industry design software and utilizing project-based learning as they progress through a series of Engineering Pathways courses. The academy works closely with the University of North Florida’s College of Engineering, to help ensure that our students are best prepared to move on to higher education after completing the four-year Academy curriculum.

In this program, students have the opportunity to earn professional industry certifications in design software programs including AutoCAD, Revit, Inventor, and Fusion360.  They take part in guest speaker events, field trips, and have the opportunity to work with professional engineers via summer internships.  Engineering students also get the chance to compete in Technology Student Association state competitions, VEX Robotics competitions, and get involved with our new Electrathon Club, which seeks to build an electric vehicle.


The Stellar Academy of Engineering provides high quality curriculum which exposes a diverse group of students to aspects relevant to the expansive engineering field.  Through business and academic involvement, students gain the knowledge, skills, and abilities to excel academically, socially, and professionally.
