PHS Career Academies

Your Future is Your Choice With Career Academies

Escambia County’s Career Academies are small learning communities within middle or high schools that focus on a career pathway for a two, three, or four-year span. Through a voluntary application process, students must apply with parental knowledge and support. Students in a career academy take a mixture of career (usually one or two) and academic (usually three or four) classes each year. Classes meet entrance requirements for four- year universities. Students develop knowledge in a given industry and (in most academies) have opportunities to earn industry certification relevant to the career academy. Student's senior year may include work experience (paid or unpaid) in the community.

Admission Requirements

  • All students must have at least a "C" average
  • Student must have no recurring discipline problems
  • Student must have no serious attendance issues

**Note: Waivers are considered. Parents may appeal if the student does not meet one or more of the requirements. Space is limited.**
