Additional Counseling / Student Services

Here at Central, the term “Academy” is used to refer to our smaller learning communities structure. In this model, students are housed in three distinct academies. Incoming freshmen will enroll in an exploratory Freshmen Academy designed to encourage a “voyage of self-discovery” as students seek to identify their academic strengths, interests, and goals. Students entering grades 10-12 are able to select between two thematic academies: the Academy of Arts and Humanities, and the Business-Science-Technology-Engineering-Mathematics (BSTEM) Academy. Each academy includes teams of teachers from math, English, social studies, and science content areas who work together in an interdisciplinary approach to ensure both personalization and academic rigor. View more information about the academies and strands on our Academies webpage.
