It is in the doing that the idea comes. – Edmund Bacon

The purpose of the Design Academy Architecture program is to prepare students for careers and / or college in the architecture / engineering related industries through the act of doing.

Through the act of DOING, the Design Academy prepares students to OWN the content applied in these courses to make informed choices regarding architecture or related fields as a college major and career path; ultimately leading to a professional career as a licensed architect, landscape architect, engineer, industrial designer, surveyor, urban planner or related profession.

Here is a snapshot of Bartram Trail Design Academy students succeeding in the Art and Science of DOING
