Abstract

Gaetz Aerospace Institute uses aviation, aerospace, and engineering to capture students’ imaginations and motivate them toward their studies. Students are officially registered in Embry-Riddle courses that will reflect on their college transcripts. The concurrent enrollment courses that are administered at high school reflect the pedagogical, theoretical, and philosophical orientation of Embry-Riddle courses. Our Embry-Riddle instructors provide discipline-specific training and orientation regarding course curriculum, assessment criteria, pedagogy, and course philosophy to the high school instructor. Assessments are evaluated at the same standards of achievement as those expected at the Daytona Beach campus. Concurrent Enrollment is great because the courses are taught on the high school campus and follow the high school schedule.
