Jan. 29 is the deadline to apply for high school Career & Technical Education (CTE) career academies for next school year. Apply online using the 2021-2022 Academy Application. The list of academies for the 2021-2022 is shown below.
Families should complete a Career Academy application for each academy of choice, even if the academies are located at the same school. In-zone students have priority to career academies. Out-of-zone student access to CTE career academies is based on available capacity of the school and program.
