Manufacturing Production Technology Academy (MPTA) Student, Laguna Creek High School

“Being in MPTA has taught me many new skills that I can apply in the real world. This academy has changed my approach to projects and their complications for the better. Working in groups have improved my social skills and offered me many opportunities to creatively express myself in a life-like 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.”

ARTSwork Pathway Student, Sheldon High School

Building Trades and Engineering Pathway, Former Student, Sheldon High School

“I’ve made cabinets and built a shed in this program–skills I can use in real-life for the rest of my life. It’s amazing!”

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.”

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.”

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.”

DATA Academy Student, Monterey Trail High School

“DATA was a family. Despite my lack of participation in any of the DATA events which includes some of the DATA meetings and all the wonderful field trips I missed out on, I knew when I walked in a DATA class setting; everyone was either my brother or my sister. This has helped me achieved my goals not necessarily what DATA provided to me with the major I picked, but rather something else. My goal when I walked into high school was to discover myself, understand who I want to be as person, and make High School as memorable as I can. DATA has truly helped me achieve that and more.”

Green Renewable Energy Engineering Network Academy Student, Franklin High School

“I wouldn’t have traded this experience for any other. Its impacted me in the most positive ways and I’ve met so many incredible individuals who have shaped me into the engineer I’ve become.”
