DISCOVER CITY ACADEMY
The program at City Academy is designed to
meet the needs of students seeking an individual and flexible approach
to their high school education. The unique timetable maximizes every
student's potential to achieve excellence, and offers credit courses
for college- and university-bound students. In a supportive environment
which recognizes individual student needs and differences, success
is the norm. Students may attend the school full- or part-time.
Extension courses are available for students who wish to supplement
a regular day school program taken elsewhere with individual courses
taken at City Academy.

also allows students who are seriously involved in sports or the
arts to take credits at an accelerated pace, leaving blocks of time
