What is an Academy?

Academies are smaller learning communities within a high school. Career academies incorporate features such as integration of academic and career-related curriculum, team teaching, and business involvement.

National studies show that Academies have a positive impact on student performance, including improved attendance, higher grades, improved graduation rates and higher college-bound rates.

Academies emphasize motivational and real-world activities including hands-on projects, business mentoring, internships, and field trips.
