We continue to closely monitor wildfire activity around our community in partnership with the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office and the Boulder Office of Emergency Management. Firefighters have done an outstanding job closing the spread of the Cal-Wood and Lefthand Canyon Fires, and we are incredibly appreciative of their hard work and dedication to protecting our communities. We must remain vigilant and prepared for any changes to the fire’s activity, particularly with high winds forecasted for this afternoon through Thursday morning. Out of an abundance of caution, the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office has requested that we extend our closure of in-person learning at school in Lyons through the end of this week.
Beginning Monday, October 5, we will be implementing a hybrid in-person learning schedule for all students who are not currently enrolled in the LaunchED program. Click here to learn more. Comenzando el lunes 5 de octubre, estaremos implementando un programa de aprendizaje híbrido en persona para todos los estudiantes que no estén inscritos actualmente en el programa LaunchED.

With strong connections to Front Range Community College’s Center of Integrated Manufacturing and industry leaders, this new program will allow students to develop industry skills, earn college credit, accrue certifications, and gain real-word experience in highly technical manufacturing careers – machining/engineering, electronics, welding, and optics.
Over the next two years, community partners will continue to guide St. Vrain in the development of coursework, certifications, internships and potentially apprenticeships.
Machining is one of the four primary components within the Advanced Manufacturing Academy. First year students will take an exploratory look at the various machining processes such as turning, sawing, milling, shaping, and broaching. They will also learn about speed and feed rates and gain an understanding of basic CNC (Computer Numeric Controlled) programming. Second year students will delve further into these topics as well as finishing techniques and have the ability to create a project incorporating these processes on a larger scale.
Welding is one of the four primary components within the Advanced Manufacturing Academy. First year students will take an exploratory look into MIG (metal inert gas) welding, TIG (tungsten inert gas) welding, and Oxy-Acetylene cutting and the role they play in the manufacturing process.. Students will also learn about joint type, prep and setup, Non-Destructive Testing (NDT), and finishing techniques. Second year students will delve into arc welding and its various types, (GTAW, GMAW, and SMAW) and will learn about various fabrication techniques as they relate to manufacturing.
The electronics branch of the Advanced Manufacturing Academy is designed to prep students for positions in electronics dealing with soldering, rework, repair, and handling. Students gain hands-on experience with industry level training, equipment, and electronics manufacturing environements.
The Optics and Photonics branch of the Advanced Manufacturing Academy is designed to prep students for optical technician positions and engineering degrees related to optics. Students gain hands-on experienc with industry level training, equipment, and optical manufacturing environments.
