The programs include culinary arts, early childhood education, and nursing. In some cases, students can earn certificates for their work.
"It gives them a leg up in that they have the experience, they have a document that says that I know this its from the accrediting agency like the students that are in engineering, drawing, and design, people refer to it as drafting they get their certifications from AutoCAD," said Patricia Jackson who teaches Career Agricultural & Technical Education.
The full school board must decide whether to apply for state money to start a Career Academy.
Board members are encouraging the community to get involved from parents to CEO's. They say if you're interested in helping, you should contact the School Administration Office.
