Part of our new College and Career Academies of Akron.

Students, families and the community are invited to attend an information session on Akron Public Schools' new career pathways model Wednesday. Jan. 24. 

The community issues session will be held at the American Red Cross, 501 W. Market St. in Akron, from 5 to 6:30 p.m.

During the presentation, attendees will learn how Akron's public school district is changing the traditional high school education model to better equip students for the workforce.

The career pathways model is in place at North High School. Akron Public Schools will offer 57 career pathways for students in the district through its College and Career Academies.

Summit Education Initiative representatives will be present at the information session to discuss how the new College and Career Academies align with their mission to help local students graduate and prepare for college and the workforce.

The career pathways model has been implemented in cities throughout the United States.

The model aims to increase student attendance and graduation rates and prepare all students to be both college and career ready. 

The information session is free, but interested attendees must register by Monday, Jan. 22. Registration is available at Eventbrite.com.
