What makes this academy exciting for students?
Students who are interested in how technologies and organizations work and who thrive on learning new digital skills and tackling new challenges will enjoy learning in this academy.
Students will work individually and in teams to solve digital challenges organizations and governments are facing with the same kinds of processes used by the professionals in the industry. An example challenge that a student might experience is participating in an international government conflict simulation, where the student is serving as a government official who must encrypt and decrypt messages to determine how to advise national leaders. Students will present their work to industry partners.
In Signature Academies, students will learn in a smaller environment from both teachers and industry partners. Students will participate in field trips and other work-based learning events, will work to earn industry credentials, and will take college-prep and advanced courses as an expected part of their program. Students will receive support to be successful in their courses and in their college and career planning – academies are successful when they create successful students!
