The 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 them, 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.
Many schools have reached the maximum number of students they can effectively teach. When that happens, the Board of Education may place an enrollment cap on the school. This means that new students may be assigned to an overflow school until a seat becomes available at their base school.
Capped schools for 2015-16
