High School Energy Career Academy

A career academy is a small learning community within a school that has a career theme, shows students links between their academic subjects and this theme, and involves employers and higher education institutions in preparing students for college and a career. A High School Energy Career Academy focuses on preparing students grades 9 through 12 for entering postsecondary education or moving directly to employment for a utility, helping communities to “grow their own.” CEWD’s energy academy model is extensive and not only helps students to build their knowledge of the energy industry, but includes employability skills and integrated academic components as well. 

CEWD is currently revising the model based on EIF 2.0 as well as the national energy career cluster.
