A CTE College and Career Academy is a learning community within a high school that you can participate in during your high school education. 

Academies feature a unique approach to prepare you for college and career success.

If you apply and are accepted to a CTE College and Career Academy, your four years of high school will include four years of college-prep courses that meet CPS graduation requirements as well as 3 to 4 classes that focus on the program you chose.

Juarez is proud to offer the following academies:
