Butler Early College Academies

Early College Academy Highlights

What are Early College Academies?

Butler's Early College Academies offer high school students the opportunity to learn about key industries while earning college credit up to an Associate degree, industry credentials, and skills to make immediate contributions in our workforce.

Our newest Early College Academy: Manufacturing/Engineering!

The Early College Manufacturing Engineering Academy, located in Andover, allows high school students to go through a four-semester curricular track for certificate completion, and puts students well on their way toward an Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree.

Students learn transferable skills as well as STEM techniques and models to prepare them for high demand STEM-related jobs. The lab experience teaches students to operate CNC mills, CNC lathes, 3D printers and more.

Butler is the only two-year college in Kansas accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology. Enrollment is limited due to lab size and safety considerations.
