The Academy is a three-year accelerated learning program. Once accepted, students will be required to remain in the Academy for at least one year (two semesters). Attendance or behavioral problems will result in a transfer to an alternative education program.
Academic courses with the Academy meet California State University and the University of California requirements for admission. Upon high school graduation, students will receive a specialized high school diploma and will have the option of attending college, receiving advanced technical training or going directly into employment in business and industry. Student elective classes will be determined by the Academy requirements. Students may be required to attend special summer programs in pre-algebra, English and computer skills and/or make up necessary graduation requirements. Summer apprenticeships and training programs will be required as well. Academic achievement is the highest priority for the Partnership Academies! Tutoring, make-up sessions, working with the business partners, meeting your mentor, and community service projects must have first priority over other activities.
