Academies @ Cambridge
College and Career Pathways @ Cambridge High School
Academies @ Cambridge offers career academies for students of exceptional merit. There are currently four academic focuses:
Audio-Visual, Technology & Film
Law & Justice
Sports & Entertaining Marketing
Each Academy focus adds to a high school curriculum that is demanding and rich in academic challenge. Students are encouraged to exceed their own expectations as well as those of their parents and teachers.
Why Career Academies?
The state of Georgia is now requiring students to complete a pathway in high school to prepare them for college or a career, and the lieutenant governor has launched the College and Career Academy Network. The state has taken other steps requiring students to identify a career pathway focus in middle school.
