Career Academies

Increased student engagement through Career Academy Programs has been a linked to increased high school completion and entering into postsecondary education. Through Career Academy participation at the secondary level students have the opportunity to explore career fields of interest to better determine which pathway is an appropriate fit prior to entering post-secondary education or directly entering the workforce. Core academic classes taught in a contextualized way allows students to clearly link core concepts to application in career fields.
