College & Career Readiness Academies

Academy of Media Arts

The Academy of Media Arts (AMA) students collaborate to produce projects to solve challenging, real-world problems while negotiating and managing the creative process.

American Sign Language Academy

The American Sign Language Academy (ASLA) prepares students to work with the Deaf Community and pursue an exciting career. American Sign Language is the 3rd most used language in the country, still, it's availability is limited. As a result, interpreters, Deaf advocates and teachers of Deaf students are in high demand.

Biomedical Careers Academy

The Biomedical Careers Academy (BCA) at Lawndale High School prepares students to take advantage of the tremendous career opportunities available in health and science. The hands-on, project-based, and problem-based curriculum engages students, allows them to explore the wide variety of health care and science career options, and equips them with knowledge and skills necessary to pursue a career or further education in the biomedical sciences.

Marine Science Academy

The Marine Science Academy (MSA) prepares students for the rigors of a four-year university science and/or physical geography program, with a special emphasis on marine related issues, technology and career opportunities. This mission will be accomplished by a group of committed teachers maintaining a science-based academy in which all students are engaged and claiming ownership of their learning. Students will be provided with a solid framework in which they will feel safe to take on challenges and create their own educational opportunities.
