Programs of Study

Arts Academies

Arts academies offer a myriad of programs designed to expose students to the fine and performing arts. The arts are a cornerstone to a well-rounded education, and arts academies offer students the opportunity to recognize and embrace the connections between the creation of art and the preservation of history and tradition within society. Arts academy programs allow students to focus on a particular aspect of the arts as well as hone and refine individual skills and talents. Fine arts programs include visual arts (painting, drawing, photography) and communicative arts (telecommunications, commercial or graphic design, computer animation). Performing arts include band, orchestra, choir, guitar, mariachi, dance, and theatre. Arts academies offer the ultimate experience in hands-on learning activities including creation, rehearsal, performance, critique, collaboration, and analysis.

Career and Technical Education

Career and Technical Education, or CTE, provides cutting edge programs allowing students to explore the many career options available after high school graduation. The focus of CTE is to ensure that all students have access to rigorous, blended college-preparatory and career-oriented programs that lead to marketable skills for the 21st Century. CTE programs offer high tech training with state-of-the-art equipment, college credit for all qualifying programs, job shadowing and internships, and industry certification (Click for more information about Career and Technical Education)

International Baccalaureate (IB)

Founded in 1968, the International Baccalaureate (IB) features four unique programs for students aged 3-19. With over 5400 IB Programs in more than 4000 schools around the world, IB is internationally recognized for its excellence. The aim of IB is to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people with adaptable skills to tackle society’s complex challenges and who will help to make it a better, more peaceful world. IB programs emphasize teaching students how to learn and to value learning as an essential, integral part of their everyday lives. The IB program promotes the development of schools that:

  • inspire students to ask questions, pursue personal aspirations, set challenging goals, and develop the persistence to achieve those goals
  • develop knowledgeable students who make reasoned ethical judgments and acquire the flexibility, perseverance, and confidence they need in order to bring about meaningful change
  • encourage healthy relationships, individual and shared responsibility, and effective teamwork

Students share information about their IB experience (Click for more information about International Baccalaureate) (Click here to visit the International Baccalaureate website)

STEM/STEAM

STEM/STEAM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics. STEAM skills are a vital part of a 21st century education, interweaving engineering, science, technology, mathematics, and the arts across the curriculum through project-based, hands on learning activities. STEAM academies are cutting edge programs that address students’ interests while incorporating the national standards in math, science, and technology. Through the use of iPads, laptops, and computer labs, technology is infused into the curriculum and used a tool to foster creativity, collaboration, and communication among students. STEAM education differs from the traditional science and math education through the use of a blended learning environment which allows students to experience how the scientific method can be applied to everyday life. STEAM students are innovators and critical thinkers who are able to make meaningful connections between school, community, work and global issues. A STEAM program high school graduate can enroll in a college-level course of study in science, technology, engineering, and math without the need for remediation. There is solid evidence to suggest that employees in all fields will need to utilize STEAM skills for problem solving in a wide range of industries (Click for more information about STEM/STEAM)
