Academies are small learning communities within 11 participating JCPS high schools that allow all students to connect what they’re learning in the classroom to the real world through a subject that interests them. Academies offer a new kind of educational experience—a shift from traditional techniques and environments to deeper learning and transition readiness for college, career, and life. Every student receives a personalized experience within a small learning community; participates in hands-on, project-based learning; and develops twenty-first-century essential skills. After four years in an Academies of Louisville high school, graduates will have participated in the following:


  •  Industry and college field trip 
  •  Job shadowing experience 
  •  SummerWorks employment opportunity  
  •  Senior-year apprenticeship, internship, or co-op 
  •  Ability to earn college credits and an industry credential 
  •  Post-secondary transition plan
