College & Career Academies of Glendale

College & Career Academies of Glendale LOGO

What are academies?

  • College & Career Academies are a college and career pathway experience for students at Glendale and Hillcrest high schools. The new model is a preview of college and career options to help students plan their futures.

    The College and Career Academy model is defined as a small, safe and supportive learning environment that is contained within a larger high school setting.

  • Beginning in the 2019-2020 school year, sophomores will take a one-credit course that allows them to focus on one specialized pathway.

    Pathways are like college majors; students choose which to pursue.

Academy of Science, Technology, Engineering & Math
Academy of Business & Law
Academy of Technology & Design

  • Students are allowed the opportunity to explore a different pathway if they discover that their original choice is not the best fit.


  • Freshman Academy

     

     

    Students begin their College & Career Academy experience as ninth-graders in Freshman Academy, a half-credit seminar course.
