Our Mission Statement: 
The Albemarle County Public Schools Math, Engineering & Science Academy aims to educate a cross-section of students with a variety of interests and strengths, to infuse traditional school curricula with real world problem-solving, collaboration and inquiry-based learning, and to prepare the engineers, researchers, inventors and entrepreneurs of the 21st century.

​​Applications for the 2017-18 school ​year can be found in the Academy Applications section.
Applications are due January 26th, 2018. Mailed applications must be post marked by January 26th.
