Davis Aerospace & Maritime School


Argonaut and Davis Aerospace Maritime High School share an innovative partnership, co-leading the school’s efforts to not only provide a high-quality educational experience for 9th – 12th graders in the City of Cleveland but to also create and facilitate a career readiness model that fosters students into careers in the field of maritime and aerospace upon graduation.  Established in 2017, Cleveland Metropolitan School District and Argonaut partnered together to open Davis A&M and welcome its’ inaugural class of sixty (60) 9th-grade students.  Davis A&M provides the core content of the high school experience, ensuring students meeting the requirements for high school graduation.  Argonaut provides hands-on engagement in the industry sectors through expanded learning programming, paid internships and work experience, teacher-supported project-based learning, and works to both develop and support CTE credentialing and industry-specific licensing and certification.

Since 2017, Davis Aerospace and Maritime High School, the CMSD school district, and Argonaut have worked together to grow student enrollment to 270 students, shift to a learning pod model during the 18-month covid pandemic, doubled the number of students who participated in year-round internship opportunities, and graduated 53 students.  Spending the past year re-navigating back to the traditional in-school model, the partnership is stepping up its’ game in 2022, further clarifying our strategic direction and working together to build even more meaningful opportunities with stronger outcomes.

Davis provides the core high school education and Argonaut provides the thematic industry-specific learning experiences and job training.
