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.”

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.”

Law and the World Academy Student, Florin High School

“For me, it was great to be a part of a mock-trial because it gave you real experience inside the court. Even if you don’t want to be a lawyer, the law academy connects you with industry professionals who help you with your resume and interview skills.”

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.”

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

Working in groups have improved my social skills and offered me many opportunities to creatively express myself in a life-like environment.”

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.”

HealthTECH Academy, Former Student, Valley High School

“The last four years of being in the Health TECH Academy have been the absolute highlight of my high school experience. Being given so many extraordinary opportunities has allowed me to get an overall sense of what being a health ambassador is and greatly developed my passion.”

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.”

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.”

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.”
