Welcome to Career Academies

Career Academies are unique ‘schools-within-schools’ offering personalized learning through career-related classes with focus on skill-sets for a chosen industry. Exciting opportunities for students offer them a chance to succeed academically while gaining valuable knowledge towards a lifetime career. Career Academies benefit students and employers alike, providing graduates advanced skills and their potential employers a capable, specialized workforce from which to hire. 

Why Career Academies

Students study all the basic courses AND get a skill they will keep for a lifetime... all while getting a head start on a career path. It''s like choosing a major... they can always change later, but national data shows that many young people stay in the same field for a long time. And Career Academy students go to college more often than other students.

Solid academics AND career skills… That''s what Career Academies are all about. Here in Northeast Florida, we are setting the pace for educators and business leaders across the US.
