A College and Career Academy is a learning community within a high school that you can participate in during your high school education.
This means that you will take classes with the same group of students throughout high school. You must apply and be accepted, with your parents knowledge and support, to an academy.
If you apply and are accepted to a College and Career Academy, your four years of high school will include 4 years of college-prep courses that meet CPS graduation requirements as well as 3 to 4 classes that focus on the program you chose.
Each year you are in the academy will equip you with more advanced skills and knowledge.
