The Antioch Unified School District is pleased to provide many educational options to our high school students. To prepare our students for college, career, and life, our high schools offer rich curricular and instructional programs based on an academy design. Eighth grade students are encouraged to review the available options and to select a high school program based on their interest. Admission to Academy programs is by application and lottery.
College and career academies provide a system of support to ensure student success. They have courses of study that meet University of California A-G requirements. Each academy consists of a team of teachers who work together with a cohort group of students to build meaningful relationships, and provide rich, engaging integrated curricula. The teacher teams meet regularly to collaboratively plan lessons, activities, and interventions specific to their student's needs. Academies also include a sequence of courses that link the common core with career-based learning activities. Academies connect learning in the classroom to real-world application.
Linked Learning Academies are built upon the following principles:
- Students take a sequence of career technical courses that link the content across the curriculum
- Students experience career-based learning activities
- Academy course work meets college entrance requirements
- Academies are open to all students; no prerequisite requirements
- Academies provide a system of support to ensure student success
