Sports Careers Academy Student, Laguna Creek High School

“The academy has been a great experience. We get to do hands-on activities: we visit the middle school here, work the basketball games and help out injured players.”

Animation, Design Arts & Digital Media Arts Pathway, Franklin High School

“Working in teams gives us real-world experiences and we have the chance to put our work into the community.”

Green Energy Technology Academy (GETA) Student, Laguna Creek High School

The thing I enjoy the most about GETA is that we get to use a lot of power tools, tools you normally don’t get to use, and we are NCCER certified in tool handling. Most classes are not very hands-on, but GETA classes are 100% hands on, so I’m 100% GETA.”

Tech Digital Academy Student, Elk Grove High School

“This academy allows students to be exposed to, not only many types of artists, but also amazing teachers and students.”

Agriculture Technology Academy Student, Florin High School

The hands-on learning, you’re experiencing it right there and it gives you more options as a student. Some students are not just good at reading, some students have to see it, hear it, or touch it. Ag Tech really addresses all learning styles and is a really positive environment.”

Business Partner

“It is refreshing to see an organization with such a commitment to community service. Look around at many events in Elk Grove and Elk Grove FFA students will be working.”

Biotechnology (Biotech) Academy, Former Student, Sheldon High School

“I just finished my 3rd year of med school, finished all of my clinical rotations and am now studying for my boards. I wanted to thank the Biotech Academy for stimulating my interest in science while I was in high school and acknowledge again that I would not be in the place that I am without it.”

Culinary Arts Academy Student, Cosumnes Oaks High School

“The teachers not only teach you cooking skills, but life skills. Now , I see cooking as an art and it’s a great way to show who I am and to show other people that same level of joy.”

School of Technology, Engineering and Media (STEM) Student, Franklin High School

“I believe STEM is an outstanding program for youth, such as myself, because not only does it help students better understand technology, but it also prepares students for both college as well as employment.”

Innovative Design & Engineering Academy (IDEA) Student, Pleasant Grove High School

“IDEA showed me real life situations on things that I will actually use in my future. Also, I love the staff of the academy & students & it feels like we are a family in our own aside from the whole of PGHS.”
