We are pleased to introduce our signature program, the Miner Academy, to our Bishop Manogue course curriculum. There is a well-established need for qualified workers in Nevada’s top industries of engineering and mining – or what is typically classified as a STEM (Science, Engineering, Technology & Math) workforce – and it is clearly falling short. Nevada boasts a rich history of mining, and as one of the top five industries in the state, we have great need for Mining Engineers skilled to staff this thriving and ever-growing industry.

With this potential future shortage, educators must take a lead role in creating programs now to reverse the trend. As an educational leader in northern Nevada, Bishop Manogue Catholic High School is prepared to be a part of the solution, with the formation of the Miner Academy.

As true to our mission and roots, the Miner Academy is a creative solution to both prepare our students for a career in Science and Technology, as well as to strategically fill a gap in Nevada’s future workforce while promoting responsible stewardship of our natural resources.

Miner Academy offers students a curriculum to prepare them for matriculation into the sciences and for careers in geology, mining, engineering, mathematics, and information systems encompassing hands-on learning, field experiences, guest speakers and more.
