About CMCSS Academies
College and career academies are offered at all seven traditional high schools. They are schools within a school, aligned to a specific career theme. They are college and career preparatory small learning communities in which a select group of students focuses their core class experience around a common career interest. Students share many of the same teachers, allowing educators to collaborate with each other in the coordination of lesson planning and classroom activities that align with the academy theme.
Academies allow for work and problem-based learning opportunities, which improve student achievement by integrating subject standards and applying a hands-on element to supplement their coursework. Schools partner with local employers to help develop curricula, provide guest speakers, and create real-world, relevant students’ experiences. Many college and career academies also provide certifications and dual enrollment options to upper-level students. For more information on CMCSS Academies, visit cmcss.net/academies.
