The Academy for Design and Fabrication (D|Fab) prepares students for college-level study and/or careers in architecture, fine art, interior design, urban planning, industrial design, industrial engineering, mechanical engineering, mechatronics, automotive technology, digital fabrication, wood technology, and computer programming. Freshmen rotate through Career and Technical Education (CTE) courses throughout the year. They are also exposed to the multitude of career possibilities in these fields through field trips and guest speakers. Cycling the students through the pathways in this manner exposes them to the variety of careers related to these areas, provides basic skills (such as such as sketching, Adobe InDesign, Photoshop, AutoCad, and 3DMax, etc), and shows students how these fields are interconnected beyond the classroom.
