Welcome To A. Philip Randolph Career Academies:
This year brings new focus and opportunities FOR the students and the community partnerships that support them. A. Philip Randolph Career Academies is proud to expand its college-and-career-based themed programs in five new areas: Welding, Electrical, Plumbing, Carpentry, and HVAC. Along with our new programs, our existing programs are better than ever. Student can focus on Information Technology, Cosmetology, Law, Public Safety, Security and Fire/Rescue. These classes also prepare students for certifications, future careers and higher education. ALL PROGRAMS have been bolstered FOR THE COMING year BY realignment with our partner educator, Florida State College at Jacksonville. THIS ALLOWS students to receive a seamless transition to continue their academic quest.As we move into a new phase of growth, we look to refine and sharpen our image. The school mascot, a Jaguar, is the perfect icon from which to seek inspiration. The jaguar is a keystone animal, at the top of the food chain; strong, opportunistic, adaptive, and worthy of admiration. These are attributes APR students will continue to exemplify as the school expands its base of opportunity and partnerships.
We are excited that you are our partner on this journey. At A. Philip Randolph we seek to prepare students to be true agents of positive change. With your continued support, we can make these next important expansion steps a reality.
Cathy Barnes, Principal
