Dr. Tasharah Wilson, Principal/CEO
Greetings parents and students,
We hope you are doing well and staying safe. Congratulations on your decision to participate in the Atlanta College and Career Academy during the 2020-21 school year. Student participation will allow scholars the opportunity to complete an entire career pathway in one academic year, receive employability skills training and earn a credential in a high demand career in the Metro-Atlanta area. Scholars will also engage in project based learning, network with Industry leaders/professionals and receive hands-on learning in a newly renovated state of the art facility! Below you’ll find FAQs about what to expect as we gear up to begin the year in a virtual setting.
What time will I attend?
Students will participate in ACCA programming based on their home high school.
Douglas, CSK, BEST, Grady, North Atlanta and Jackson high school students will attend virtual sessions daily (Monday – Friday) 8:30 – 11:30 a.m. the entire school year (August 2020 – May 2021).
Mays, Washington, Therrell, South Atlanta, Carver STEAM, Carver Early College and Phoenix students will attend virtual sessions daily (Monday – Friday) 12:10 -2:50 p.m. the entire school year (August 2020 – May 2021).
When can I tour the new state of the art facility?
Tours will be provided after we return to face to face learning.
What about COVID-19?
Decisions regarding face to face learning will be shared on Atlanta Public Schools’ homepage https://www.atlantapublicschools.us/
How will I receive updates and news about ACCA?
Please ensure home schools have your correct contact information (cell phone number and email address). Future updates will be shared via call post and email blast. You can also monitor our webpage https://www.atlantapublicschools.us/Page/873 , or follow us on Facebook or Twitter @AtlantaCCAcad.
