The Summer Career Academy provides students about to start 9th and 10th grade with a unique opportunity to explore the growing world of career & technical education (CTE). Taking cues from James Rumsey Technical Institute’s Simulated Workplace curriculum, students are invited to come participate in activities related to some of our free high school courses that the school has to offer. This is a FREE program for students of the tri-county area (Berkeley, Jefferson, and Morgan).
