Dixie County High School has 5 Career Academies whose goals are to prepare students to enter the workforce or continue their education. To succeed in this goal, it is necessary
to have expectations and guidelines for students that will instill professionalism, develop good work ethics and provide safety.
The 5 academies include:
Academy of Agricultural Technologies
Academy of Information Technology
Academy of Criminal Justice Operation
Academy of Health Related Careers
Academy of Welding Technologies
"The Dixie District Career Academies provide students with a career related program that will prepare students not only for college, but also with the certifications that will allow students immediate employment in the workforce. We will encourage and guide each student in preparing for the next major steps in his or her life including further education, entry into an academy related career and to develop a compassionate, responsible citizen for the important roles as an adult." "This will be accomplished by treating students as capable, responsible, collaborative, lifelong learners and providing challenging, integrated, authentic, meaningful learning opportunities within and outside the school and by treating faculty as professionals fully empowered to work within the community and the local school district to make important decisions in the best interests of our students."
