Kirkwood Career Academies

High school students can earn free college credit through the Kirkwood Career Academy programs, taking Kirkwood Courses at City High as well as Alternative Concurrent options. Career Academies are collections of hands-on technical courses focused around specific careers or areas of interest that are geared toward high school juniors and seniors. Most of these courses are offered at the Kirkwood Regional Center at the University of Iowa. City high school students are able to participate in advanced learning and can earn FREE college credit. Additionally, students have access to highly technical state-of-the-art labs and cutting-edge equipment. Students are trained in areas which can lead to high-skill, high-wage career opportunities.

There are over ten Kirkwood Career Academies being offered for the 2021-2022 school year in the general field of Manufacturing, Automotive, Business, Computer Networking/Programming, Criminal Justice, Health Science and Pre-Liberal Arts Transfer. Some of the academies have the potential of leading to job opportunities! By completing Career Academies students are more likely to be prepared to enter the workforce or go on to receive additional training for today’s high demand manufacturing and technical fields.
