The Career and Innovation Academy of Orange
The mission of The Career and Innovation Academy of Orange is to cultivate an environment where the faculty encourages students to achieve academic, social, emotional, and personal success as they foster relationships with the community and pursue their interests in the real world through internships. A collaboration of academics and career interests promote life skills and values which can be utilized in the classroom and beyond. Each student’s personalized learning plan connects them to their interests and enables them to acquire authentic values along with sustainable and practical knowledge. Students will be expected to demonstrate this knowledge by applying obtained skills to every aspect of their daily routines. Upon graduation, our students will embark on a journey as self-directed thinkers and learners while aspiring to continue their education in addition to focusing on future endeavors.
We believe that schools should give students more opportunities which promote individuality, self-respect, and responsibility inside and outside of the classroom. Our goal is to connect the students’ interests to relevant and meaningful learning experiences in the real world & urge students to always do their personal best. We will provide students with the knowledge and life skills to prepare and succeed in the global community. Out staff here at the Career and Innovation Academy of Orange is committed to educating and mentoring students’ one child at a time. Our students will continue to challenge themselves to ultimately fulfill their potential
