Program Overview

  • Our mission is to provide students with a plan of study that focuses on academics, career, and personal development so when students graduate they are 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 programming also consists of partnerships with the International Salon and Spa Academy, Pikes Peak Community College and Spartan College of Aeronautics and Technology. These partnerships will open up more doors for our students to pursue postsecondary and workforce opportunities that are of interest to them.

    Additionally, staff members will be Highly Qualified and certified in their area of expertise.

    The location for our college and career readiness program is located at Sierra High School where we have access to an automotive bay, a wood shop, and Culinary Arts facilities.
