The Clarksville-Montgomery School System is proud to offer college and career academies in each of the seven public high schools.
A college and career academy is a school within a school aligned with a specific career or college preparatory theme. They are small learning communities where a select group of studentswith a common interest share many of the same teachers, allowing educators to collaborate with each other to coordinate lesson plans and classroom activities aligned with the academy theme.
Academies are open to incoming freshman. Students will have the opportunity to apply to seven different college and career academies in the district including: the Academy of Business and Finance at Clarksville High, STEM Academy at Kenwood, Academy of Plant and Animal Systems at Montgomery Central High, Academy of Computer and Game Programming at Northeast, Academy of Health Science at Northwest, Academy of Media Arts and Technology at Rossview High, and the Academy of Criminal Justice and Homeland Security at West Creek.
If there are more applicants than available seats, a lottery will be conducted.
