Career Academies for Adult Education

The School of Academic Foundations wants to give you a head start on pursuing a major or career. We offer five Career Academies designed to help you make the transition into college or a profession. The School of Academic Foundations will soon be offering Career Academy credentials and college-level coursework you can pursue while attaining a high school diploma, a GED® or higher level of English. When students select their Career Academy, it helps define their career goals – similar to declaring a major in college. Students are welcome to select multiple Career Academies or change to another Academy at any time. You can view, download and print our Career Academy information sheet.
