The Center for Engineering offers a four-year advanced curriculum integrating math, science and technology as a study of the profession of engineering. The Center's curriculum focuses on the development of the theoretical understandings of the engineering discipline and the practical skills and understandings necessary for any engineer.
Students who are not enrolled in Geometry in the 8th grade must take Geometry in summer school before admission, or take it as a 9th grader at their home school in addition to Algebra II at the Engineering Center. Parents must transport students to Burton. Roanoke County Public Schools will provide bus transportation back to the home school only.
