Students are invited to explore different career paths at Alabama Destinations Career Academy (ALDCA), a statewide program of the Chickasaw City Schools District, which is now accepting enrollment applications for the 2020-2021 school year.
At the career readiness-focused school, students can pair a solid academic foundation with hands-on learning experiences in growing career fields like information technology, healthcare, and manufacturing. Whether their path leads them directly into the workplace, to the military, or to higher education, career readiness provides students with the skills they need to get there.
“With innovative technology, inspiring teachers, and a dynamic, interactive curriculum, ALDCA students learn at a pace that’s right for them,” said ALDCA Head of School Kayleen Marble. “Our individualized approach meets students where they are and encourages them to pursue their passions.”
In addition to career readiness courses, ALDCA students have access to a robust curriculum and can attend live virtual classes taught by state-certified teachers. Students are offered a full course load in the core subjects of math, science, English language arts, history, and a host of electives including world languages. Teachers regularly communicate with students and their families via email, phone and during one-on-one meetings.
An online and blended public-school program, ALDCA is available tuition-free to students in kindergarten through tenth grade who reside anywhere in the state. Many families and students choose ALDCA because it provides an alternative to traditional brick-and-mortar education. Athletes, advanced learners, and students seeking a bullying-free environment can balance a full academic course load along with extracurricular pursuits or medical needs.
Outside of the classroom, ALDCA offers online student clubs and in-person activities such as field trips, community service opportunities and social gatherings.
Students and families are encouraged to attend an online or in-person information session hosted by the school. More information on ALDCA, how to enroll, and a schedule of upcoming events can be found at aldca.k12.com.
