Career Academies

  • Super SibankaThe academy is a smaller learning community that focuses on a career theme and is integrated into students’ studies including their core curriculum courses. Each year the same group (cohort) of academy students takes a Career and Technical Education course aligned with the career theme, as well as one or more core classes together. This school-within-a-school model may be either a three- or four-year academy.

    Each academy student participates in several work-based learning activities such as job shadowing, career fairs, career themed industry tours and an internship. Academy students are prepared to participate in these experiences through their cohort academy courses. Each academy student is required to do an internship between the junior and senior year that relates to the academy theme. The internship will be for 135 hours.
