Coming Soon: Technical High School 5.0

At the Goodwin University Magnet Industry 5.0 High School, classes will consist of eighteen to twenty students. There will be approximately seventy-four students in each grade (freshman through senior year). Students will be enrolled in classes that meet the Connecticut State Graduation Requirements while offering them a unique curricular experience in the many existing and emerging technologies and professions in the state. With business and entrepreneurialism at the core of their curriculum, students will explore a variety of technology industries. In this unique environment, students will apply their learning to real-world community based problems collaborating with Connecticut industry leaders. As they progress through each year in high school, they will design and build solutions. As a result, paid internships and apprenticeships will be provided to the students while developing their future ready skills. This high school will be in direct support of the effort of the Governor’s Workforce Council and the workforce boards across the state. 

Small instructional spaces for speciality services like speech and language, social worker, psychologist, and special education will be provided. In addition, the Goodwin University Magnet Industry 5.0 High School will also include a library, theater, and gymnasium. There will also be a cafeteria that will also be used as a large meeting space for family education nights and exhibition events at which the students present their work to state-wide business partners. Lastly, the Goodwin University Magnet Industry 5.0 High School will boast an astronaut training center as part of a partnership with the Victorian Space Science Education Centre (VSSEC) in Melbourne, Victoria Australia. Students will apply technical science and core content learning to a virtual mission to Mars. 

The school will have four focus areas and a central theme that is evident in all parts of the curriculum. This design will be like spokes and hub of a wagon wheel, whereas the focus areas are the spokes and the essential workplace skills are at the hub. These reflect the skills that students will need in order to be future ready and enter into Industry 5.0. Each of these areas will require a classroom/lab space that is equipped with the proper equipment.
