Why Career Academy - First in a series of blog posts

As a way to communicate the importance of Career Academy education in Howard County, weekly blog posts will highlight an academy with letters and articles from community advisors, parents, students and teachers. It’s a simple attempt to open the ARL building to generate more curiosity, interest, and awareness of the great educational opportunities for Howard County students. If you’re interested in a tour of our facilities, make an appointment with the front office and we’ll be more than happy to show you around. Now listen to some of the voices within our building. For the next six weeks, the blogs will highlight the Academy of Finance, taught by Dr. Maddy Halbach. A certified master teacher, Dr. Halbach has an incredible impact on students’ sense of marketing and finance.

Research Trials

We have added trials for several resources for our academies research. Be sure to check them out, especially Nursing and Allied Health, along with Automotive and Engineering.
