The California Partnership Academy model is a three-year program (grades ten-twelve) structured as a school-within-a-school. Academies incorporate integrated academic and career technical education, business partnerships, mentoring, and internships. Academy components include rigorous academics and career technical education, with a career focus, a committed team of teachers, and active business and post-secondary partnerships. A career pathway is a coherent sequence of rigorous academic and technical courses that prepare students for successful completion of state academic standards and support transition to more advance post-secondary coursework related in a career area of interest.
