The Career Academy and Technical School will work collaboratively with students, parents, teachers, and the community to educate students and foster life-long learning, to help all students reach their full potential and to develop successful, responsible, and ethical citizens in a global community. The mission and philosophy is guided by five core concepts that permeate The Career Academy and Technical School and are reflected throughout the curriculum.
Caring-The staff provides encouragement, hope, support and compassion to help achieve desired outcomes.
Communication-Events and activities associated with the students are validated in written and/or electronic records that reflect standards of practice and accountability.
Best Practices-An evidenced-based problem-solving approach to students' success that includes assessment, analysis, planning, implementation and evaluation, with emphasis on the student's individuality, with consideration for cultural, societal and environmental influences.
Professional Behaviors- Staff adheres to standards of professional practices; is accountable for her/his own actions and behaviors; and teaches within legal, ethical and regulatory framework.
