    Growing our Academies!  

    Could you be the one? Do you have skills in the Communications Engineering or Internet Technology fields? Atlantic Coast High School is growing. Not only do we have AP and honors programs, but we are also slated to open the 2020-2021 school year with four academies that align with the most recent needs assessment in the career world for Jacksonville and beyond.
     
    The academies we are growing are
     
    Digital Audio/Visual Communications
    Engineering
    Gaming and Simulation
    Web Development Technologies
     
    To grow our academies, we want to make sure we are on point with the needs of these careers. That is where you come in. Ideally, each of these programs will have their own unique governance advisory board. The focus of the board is to help direct the program so that our students have the best experiences aligned with the real-world workforce. Quarterly meetings allow members to discuss and/or review the activities, successes, and needs currently affording students. Other discussions involve team influence in the direction for future opportunities as it relates to workforce needs in the career community.
     
    We are looking for industry-involved people, parents and students who have an interest in our academies, as well leaders in college and technical career institutions. Please complete the form below if you have interest in being a part of any of our advisory boards. If you know of people in these fields who may be interested, please tag them on this post.
     
    Thanks for any assistance you can provide to help Atlantic Coast grow our budding academies.
