The Weber Institute of Applied Sciences and Technology was founded by the Stockton Unified School District in 2000 as a "Specialty School". It is divided into three career academies: Information Technology, Health and Transportation & Green Energies. The school now serves a 9th-12th grade student body of 400-425 students from culturally and ethnically diverse backgrounds. Students come via an application process and a contract with affirmed commitments by students, parents and school. (See the application on the left.) Students are expected to maintain a 2.0 GPA, good attendance and have no discipline issues to be considered and enrollment continued from year to year.
Weber Institute is dedicated to academic and career preparation with an emphasis on beign productive citizens. Students learn using new equipment meeting current industry standards each of the three academies. Weber Institute seeks to provide a smooth transition from school to work as students are encouraged to participate in internship programs in their particular career. This allows students the opportunity to practice those skills obtained at the Institute. The school maintains a “workplace” culture with students in appropriate professional dress.
Weber Institute framework is based upon the career academy model as follows:
1) A small learning community within the larger high school,
2) A curriculum that combines a career focus while meeting college entrance requirements,
3) Partnerships/Internships with supporting employers, community members, and institutions of higher education (CASN, 2005).
4) Students are required to complete a final portfolio consisitng of a research paper, physcial project and presentation prior to graduation.
Weber graduates are prepared for College and Career:
~ They earn their high school diploma
~ They can qualify for a 4 year university
~ They can earn transfer credit to Delta College
~ They can earn an industry internship at a local business or community organization
~ They can earn an industry certificate from their Academy (see each academy program for more details)
