An academy is a school within a school that connects the core academic subjects with a particular field of study. An academy offers a career path sequence that will prepare students to achieve high academic standards and superior work skills. Our four academies will feature college dual enrollment and real world exposure from professionals in the field. Internships, mentoring, on the job training, and extensive partnerships with businesses and industry will be offered. The academies are not required, but available choices for all West Boca students.
