About ESAS

The Environmental Studies through Arts and Sciences Academy (ESAS) has partnered with the Water Augmentation Study (WAS), a long-term research project of the Council for Watershed Health, to increase local water supplies and reduce urban runoff pollution through the infiltration of storm water runoff in our community. A specialization course in Energy and Environment help students gain an appreciation and an understanding of energy, while exploring innovative ways to reduce, conserve, and produce it using solar, thermal, and wind power.  Students in ESAS design and model alternative energy sources to meet today's energy demand.
