Gaetz Aerospace Institute is a premier cooperative partnership linking Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University with secondary schools. Through this partnership, high schools can offer students the opportunity to enroll in Embry-Riddle courses for university credit. Our concurrent enrollment follows the high school schedule, so students don’t have to leave campus to attend our courses.
