Young Professionals' Academy

The Young Professionals’ Academy (YPA) offers a semester long program that assists students in developing the skills, knowledge, and expertise to succeed in work and life.  Through classroom lessons and two, six-week professional, work-place learning experiences, YPA students work to develop the critical thinking, communication, collaboration, creativity, and problem-solving skills required for success in college and careers.  YPA is open to students from all three high schools through an application process.  In addition to site visits and internships, students will need to attend seminar and blended learning days at the Emerald Campus.
