Incoming 10th-, 11th- and 12th-graders will choose between four programs for their high school studies.
Seniors are limited to the selection at Juneau-Douglas High School.
Juneau School District officials have emphasized, however, that every student will have to complete a core requirement of courses to graduate, regardless of the school or academy in which they enroll.
Juneau-Douglas High School has two main options:
Architecture, Construction and Engineering Academy - Teacher Ricky Bass said the ACE program will give students the chance to get hands-on training that for some students may include building a house. Bass said the program's scholastic requirements won't be just for "hammer slingers."
"We want all our kids to be college-ready," he said.
General Education program - This is the only nonacademy option available to most JDHS students and is a continuation of the traditional high school education currently available there.
Thunder Mountain High School has two options:
Exploration and Discovery Academy - The focus of this academy will be on math, science and technology, and how these subjects interact together.
Global Expressions Academy - The humanities-based program will focus on communications, world affairs and foreign languages.
