What is the Academies of Central Arkansas? In short, it’s about elevating all public high schools across Pulaski County to ensure scholars are COLLEGE READY, CAREER READY and prepared to be life-long learners. Students are allowed to choose a learning experience that interests them while teachers are supported and given a voice through small learning communities and business partners. Best of all, it’s for all students with no application needed and at no additional cost.

The Academies of Central Arkansas better prepares students for both post-secondary pursuits and/or entering a career immediately after high school and teaches them the skills necessary to be successful in life. Students will have the opportunity to earn dual/concurrent credit and industry recognized certifications.
