Laguna Creek High School

Green Energy Technology Academy (GETA) 

The LCHS Green Energy Tech Academy (GETA) is a four-year high school program dedicated to preparing students to enter two-or four-year colleges, begin a technical training program or head directly into the work force. GETA teaches the concepts of energy extraction, conversion and transmission processes through complex, hands-on, project-based work.

THE GETA FAMILY – GETA students learn and excel together. Whether it is investigating energy conversions at a behind-the-scenes tour of Six Flags theme park, physically supporting each other in team-building activities at the Ropes Course or collaborating on their core academic course assignments, academy students study together in a family-like atmosphere. GETA teachers follow this same team approach when collaborating on cross-curricular lessons to show students connections while monitoring student development both inside and outside the classroom.
