About SAMS Academy
Southwest Aeronautics, Mathematics, and Science Academy was created to specifically address the concerns of President Obama when he said in his most recent State of the Union address, ”Over the next 10 years, nearly half of all new jobs will require education that goes beyond a high school education. And yet, as many as a quarter of our students aren’t even finishing high school. The quality of our math and science education lags behind many other nations. America has fallen to ninth in the proportion of young people with a college degree. And so the question is whether all of us – as citizens, and as parents – are willing to do what’s necessary to give every child a chance to succeed.”
As a descendant of the highly successful Southwest Secondary Learning Center, the Southwest Aeronautics, Mathematics, and Science (SAMS) Academy, will continue doing what we believe is “necessary” to create the best educated, most employable, career-driven students in the state, but with a twist: we will focus on Integrative STEM Aeronautical Education.
