Why Career Academies?
 
Students will be able to choose their own academy based on their interests and future plans.
 
Career academies are designed to prepare students for both college and careers by linking students with peers, teachers, and community partners in a structured environment that fosters academic success.
The career academy concept has three key elements:
  1. A small learning community (SLC).
  2. A college-prep sequential curriculum with a career theme.
  3. An advisory board that forges partnerships with employers, higher education institutions, and the community.
