  • Our mission is to provide students with a restorative culture and a plan of study that focuses on academic and personal development so when students graduate they are college or career ready.

    The Career Readiness Academy is a program designed to support all students in learning through both online classes and hands on instruction. Our district supports a variety of learning models because we know that not everyone learns the same way. Our online courses are aligned to common core and provide students with a rigorous learning experience.

    New to Career Readiness Academy is our Business Marketing class and Work Based Learning Market Place. Business Marketing is designed to prepare students for employment and advancement in marketing, retailing, management and owning their own business. Students enrolled in this course will study a number of topics that will enable them to advance in the field of marketing with additional credits earned through work experience.

    Work Based Learning Market Place is a continuum of activities that occur in part or in whole, in the workplace, providing the learner with hands-on real world experiences. Learning about work, learning through work and learning at work. Connecting student's talents, interests and aptitudes to the economic landscape is The Market Place mission. Students will have opportunities to do job shadowing, internships, paid and unpaid, as well as apprenticeships. Career Readiness Academy is here to help you explore your future! 

    Students are also able to participate in high school elective courses with Sierra High School such as Art, Band, Choir, Drama, and P.E.
