College and Career Academies of Akron will transform the traditional high school experience to an innovative model that prepares all students for the future. Academies link academic subjects to college majors and career sectors. Students and teachers use experiential learning to make lessons come alive. Different pathways designed and supported by community partners are created to introduce students to a variety of college and career options.
