Pivot Charter School Academy Program
The Pivot Charter School academy program is a workforce ready high school preparation program through which students graduate with both a high school diploma and industry accredited certification. Each student in the academy declares a major in high school - much like a college student would declare a major - working towards joining the world of professionals. The exciting program gives students the opportunity to earn all of their high school electives in their industry of interest and certification.
Pivot academy students enjoy the autonomy of working together in an open collaborative learning center where they share insight into their industry studies. All students in the same industry certification program share electronic files, textbooks, and open ideas about learning styles.
Instructors - called education coordinators - play the role of student and group mentor in helping to foster a learning environment that drives innovative critical thinking that will serve the students in the industry of their certification choice
Students gain industry knowledge and experience through an internship and externship program. Academy students spend time in local organizations that function in their industry certification of choice. In addition to service and research hours, students gain valuable insight into and interaction with industry professionals.
