Project Lead the Way pre-engineering curriculum is founded on the fundamental problem-solving and critical-thinking skills taught in traditional career and technical education (CTE), but at the same time integrates national academic and technical learning standards and science, technology, engineering, and math / STEM principles, creating what has been called “one of the great models of the new CTE succeeding all across the country.” PLTW was recently cited by the Harvard Graduate School of Education as a “model for 21st century career and technical education.”

The program includes practical experiences in web page design, interactive presentation development, testing, and production. Specialized skills in multimedia presentations such as video editing, audio features, and animation and authoring software are used to produce a variety of interactive high-tech digital media. Instruction and learning activities take place in a state-of-the-art laboratory.

Each year our seniors are awarded millions of dollars in scholarships from some of the best colleges and universities in the country.

Greetings Greyhound Nation,

I am thrilled to be returning to Lincoln Park Academy as principal. As a life long resident of St. Lucie County and Lincoln Park Academy alumna (Class of 1997), I understand the rich history, legacy, and tradition of Lincoln Park Academy and its contributions to the community. I am excited about this upcoming year and the great things to come!
