About AeroSTEM Academy
AeroSTEM Academy has its roots in one of the most viable California charter schools:
CORE Charter School. In operation since 1998 and fully WASC accredited, this charter school has an excellent reputation and successful track record in personalized learning. At CORE, students individual learning styles, interests, skills, and family life are priorities.
In 2013 AeroSTEM Academy had grown to fully occupy its own resource center. The program added a Model Aeronautics course as well as general academic classes. Through grant funds in partnership with the Sutter County Office of Education, the program developed. Students had access to essential technology including a certified flight simulator, unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) kits, and 3D printers. The program served 7th and 8th-grade students on the brink of their high school experience and high school students seeking to complete CTE pathways for industry certification.
In 2018, AeroSTEM Academy was approved for a 3-year contract by the Sutter County Office of Education to branch off and open its own Charter School. Grades 6-9 were initiated, with each year adding a grade up to 12th grade.
In 2021, AeroSTEM was awarded a Charter Renewal for 5 more years where grades 5 and 12 were added. Ultimately, AeroSTEM Academy will be a Middle and High School, Grades 5-12.
