Map and Charts: Career Academies in California

Check out our new interactive map on career academies in California high schools for 2013-2014.

The programs typically combine college-preparatory academics aligned to a specific career field – health care, for example – alongside real-world work experiences, including internships, job shadowing or mentoring opportunities. The map is part of an EdSource initiative focusing on preparing students for college and careers, which is the goal of current reforms such as the Common Core State Standards and the Local Control Funding Formula.
