PASSION Academy consists of 7 different institutes that encompass a very wide selection of potential career paths students may choose from as their “PASSION”. Students can switch between institutes throughout their High School career (must complete at least 1quarter per institute) in order to better understand what they may be passionate about. The course load for each student will be very writing intensive, they will learn how to conduct research, write an essay in APA Style format and how to present their findings through public speaking. The Academy will also serve to teach students about finding what their God-given gifts are and their personality type so they can relate them to their career path. Additionally, the Academy will try to instill in all students what it means to be a Christian in the workplace. They will also learn about professionalism, business communication, proper conduct in the workplace, how to dress in a formal, semi-formal, business-casual, casual setting. The Academy classroom has been intentionally designed to look and feel like a professional office and boardroom so that students may feel more comfortable when going to their first job interview. Daily instruction revolves around leadership. Students will be introduced to leadership concepts, theories and practices. They will be equipped in understanding what emerging leadership looks like, how it may apply to their career passion and their every day Christian living.
