The Academy organizes group visits to companies, nonprofits, and public agencies where the careers that students are learning about are actually carried out.
Even during COVID, our students visited:
- Two organic farms, to learn about environmental sciences and the way in which science affects the food we eat
- Shakespeare Theater in Montgomery, to experience the fine arts, and understand all of the jobs and careers that make a fine arts center the heart of a community
- Vaughan Regional Medical Center, to meet with 10 physicians and health care specialists from a variety of service areas
- Hyundai manufacturing plant, to see how robotics and engineering come together to create efficiency in manufacturing
As well a variety of local businesses and entrepreneurs to understand the opportunities for creativity and success right at home.
