Career Academies provide equal access to all students, with multiple pathways for college and the workforce. Teachers work together to integrate curriculum that is both rigorous and relevant to students. There is a direct benefit to your school and the community when your students are focused, motivated... and have marketable skills. And remember, Career Academy students attend college at a higher rate than the general population.
As the global economy continues to shift, the way we prepare young people for success also evolves. By providing internships, job shadowing and professional mentors... along with the skills needed for success in college and at work... we are giving students the best chance to win in the world.
