Partnership Grants go to Hoover, Kearny, San Diego high schools

California Partnership Academy planning grants for $15,000 have been awarded to Hoover's Academy for Health and Healthier Communities, the school of Digital Media and Design at the Kearny complex, and and San Diego SciTech's MedTech Academy.

The funds will be used to plan and start the academies for next school year. An additional $41,000 is available if eligibility is met.

The CPA model is a three-year program in grades 10-12, structured as a school-within-a-school. Academies incorporate integrated academic and career technical education, business partnerships, mentoring, and internships. The new academies will only receive funding for planning and implementation for the first year. During that year, they must show an alternative sustainability plan.
