Round Rock ISD Academies
"Preparing Our Students for the World and Beyond"
What is an Academy?
A small learning community, comprising a group of students within the larger high school who take classes together, taught by a team of teachers from different disciplines who work as a team to integrate curriculum and personalized instruction.
Academies provide a college preparatory curriculum with a career theme, enabling students to see relationships among academic subjects and their application to a broad field of work. Opportunities for internships, mentoring, and involvement in career related student organizations foster college and career readiness for all students.
In Round Rock, partnerships with employers, the community, and local colleges bring resources from outside the high school to improve student motivation and achievement.
