The Ingalls Shipbuilding Academy is a program designed to allow seniors to learn and develop knowledge in a total of eight different skills. These skills include carpentry, welding, sheet metal, along with many others. Any of these skills would be valuable for our seniors who seek employment after graduation. Ingalls reserves so many positions for their Apprenticeship Program for the students who complete their Shipbuilding Academy. These apprentice positions will allow some of our students to start employment immediately after graduation, is they so desire. The Academy is located at the old Gaston Point Elementary School site and classes take place during the normal school hours.
