Signature Academic Program


Preparing Students for Careers in Architecture

Gulliver Prep’s Architecture Signature Academic Program, offered at the Upper School, prepares students for successful careers in architecture, interior, and industrial design. Learning 21st century future-ready skills, students research, create, design, and build. In addition to learning traditional drafting skills, students learn to design and build scaled models in physical and virtual space. Students become proficient in Building Information Modeling (BIM) and Computer Aided Design and Drafting (CAD) systems. Utilizing the latest software, students design and build in virtual space, creating virtual models, and renderings.
