CALVIN B. SHORTER
The Career Academy has been established with the sole purpose of reaching and educating high school aged young men in Guilford County who have slipped through the cracks of the traditional school system. The program provides connections for occupational training in the student’s chosen field and academics in all core classes. A partnership with our local community college allows our students to take their vocational classes on their campus and earn dual enrollment credit towards their NC high school diploma and college degree at the same time.
Our program operates as a private, 501(c)3 non-profit high school with a license from the NC Department of Non-Public Education. Our goal is to provide a strong foundation of life skills, a NC high school diploma, vocational training, and a network of mentors and opportunity for a lifetime of success for all of our young men who complete our program.
