One of the key pillars to the Academies of Central Arkansas model is to incorporate teaming in each of the academies represented on campus. This means that core content teachers, CTE teachers and academy administrator and support staff share common planning time where they will meet to discuss individual student progress and to plan lessons that embed relevant CTE-learning objectives into the core classes of scholars within their academy. We call that “teaching through the lens,” and we know that it helps keep students engaged in their learning when they are applied correctly.

Each academy team of teachers has access to professional development from national experts to assist in this new framework.
