VIC PREPARATORY ACADEMY

Mt. Calvary is launching a Vocational, Industrial, and College (VIC) Preparatory Academy in the Spring of 2021. This academy will focus on low-income, marginalized, and minority youth with career exploration, industrial trades and college preparatory skills. Health science will be embedded in the curriculum with a major focus on diversity, equity, and inclusion for underserved, minority populations. VIC will serve both a middle school and high school cohorts. VIC will also focus on helping youth better understand their self-worth, interests, and abilities to aid in personal and professional development through the incorporation of technology. Students will learn about various career opportunities and sustainable professions within the region through mentorship opportunities since Mt. Calvary believes positive role models can successfully help high poverty, at risk students be successful. With that in mind, a major emphasis will be placed on recruiting students from low income communities.
