The Wings Aerospace Academy Learning Center was founded in August 2015 to serve students who have a passion for aviation and aerospace. It is a tuition-free charter program for 5th-9th grade students which combines online core curriculum content with hands-on aviation and aerospace experiences. Each year, the program will be extended one grade until the year 2020 when WAA Learning Center will be open to students in grades 5-12.
Wings Aerospace Academy Learning Center offers a blended, online learning format, bringing together the best of two worlds—technology and on-line education. Core courses are provided by a certified, multi-district charter school, the Elevate Academy. Experiential, hands-on aerospace-based STEM curricula is provided by Wings Over the Rockies Air and Space Museum teachers and staff to give students practical skills and projects.
