Use this guide as a reference to begin thinking about your future. We hope you find it helpful as you navigate your choices for high school and think about important milestones and opportunities that will prepare you for college, career, and life. 



College & Career Prep

Recognized by the White House as a national high school transformation model, the Academies of Nashville provide students with one of the best college and career prep experiences in the nation.

Choosing An Academy

The Academy selection process is driven by you, the student. During your freshman year you will learn about all the Academies in Metro Schools.

Student Organizations

High school is more than just academics. Learning takes place outside the classroom, too! Your school’s clubs, career and technical student organizations and activities are all part of your high school experience.

Discussing Your Choices

Your friends and family will ask you about your Academy choice and school selection. We have provided some questions to help you navigate those chats you’ll be having.
