Apply Learning, Drive Student Achievement
Abstract: Academies are smaller, personalized learning communities in which students apply what they learn in math, science, social studies and language arts. Academies use a theme to engage students and bring relevance and rigor to the curriculum. For example, students in an engineering academy learn the core subjects using the principles of engineering, which allows for greater understanding. Academies help students explore colleges and careers while learning critical 21st century skills so they graduate ready and are prepared for college, careers and life.
