CORAL GABLES SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL CAREER ACADEMIES
What are Academies?
Academies are small learning communities within a school that draw on the interests of students in career-related subjects . Studies have shown that students who participate in the academy model are more motivated to continue to post- secondary education.
Academies prepare students for post-secondary education and careers through academic learning and hands-on work experiences within a theme-based, contextualized curriculum.
Students are exposed to broad career opportunities in the work force so that they can make sound choices for the future. Each academy is connected to interested employers in the community who provide the school with technical support, advisory board members, speakers, field trip hosts, mentors, and internships.
