Career Academy

Career Academy is a blend of high school and Mid-Plains Community College classes directed at a specific career field or pathway.   These classes prepare a student for post-secondary education or entry into a chosen career.  An Academy also includes work-related experiences.

In an academy you can explore and learn about your chosen career field, get experiences in the real world of work, take classes offered in your chosen career field and earn college credit while still in high school.

The academy must have:

  1. 1. Three or more approved courses.
