Fresh off of a vote that extended its contract with Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology for one more year, the Loudoun County School Board members are beginning to delve deeper into the possibility of developing the county's own facility for advanced and technical education courses.
The Curriculum and Instruction Committee met with officials from the science and technical education departments Oct. 2 to develop a vision for the project, which would house the Academy of Science and the C.S. Monroe Technology Center in the same facility.
The combining of the two facilities would allow each to double in size and house roughly 1,500 students.
Committee Chairman Jill Turgeon (Blue Ridge) was joined by committee members Jennifer Bergel (Catoctin) and Bill Fox (Leesburg) at the meeting along with fellow School Board members Eric Hornberger (Ashburn) and Tom Reed (At Large).
The facility – tentatively named the Loudoun Advanced Technology Academy – will have a vision which emphasizes programs specializing in the STEM subjects, but most importantly will provide Loudoun students with a facility and resources to develop them into leaders and innovators of the 21st century.
