Career Academy

Take college Career & Technical Education classes for free and earn certificates while you're still in high school!

What is Career Academy?

Career Academy is a form of Concurrent Enrollment as it provides students with the opportunity to take college classes while still in high school and to receive dual credit. However, it differs from the Concurrent Enrollment program in various ways.

Career Academy students take outlined college courses in the participating Career & Technical Education (CTE) programs (free of charge for the student), which allows them to earn certificates in those programs.

There is a minimum of a 1 year commitment (2 semesters) (some programs are longer) with classes being offered at the Aims campuses and/or online (depending on the program/class). Students must provide their own transportation to and from their courses. The cost of tuition, fees, and course materials is paid for by the school district, therefore the program is often described as a scholarship program.

Upon graduation from high school, students can continue with their college career ahead of others and/or begin working at entry-level jobs in many of those fields.
