College and career academies provide a system of support to ensure student success. They have courses of study that meet University of California A-G requirements. Each academy consists of a team of teachers who work together with a cohort group of students to build meaningful relationships, and provide rich, engaging integrated curricula. The teacher teams meet regularly to collaboratively plan lessons, activities, and interventions specific to their student's needs. Academies also include a sequence of courses that link the common core with career-based learning activities. Academies connect learning in the classroom to real-world application.
Linked Learning Academies are built upon the following principles:
Students take a sequence of career technical courses that link the content across the curriculum
Students experience career-based learning activities
Academy course work meets college entrance requirements
Academies are open to all students; no prerequisite requirements
Academies provide a system of support to ensure student success
