College and Career Academies
The mission of the College and Career Academies is to ensure all students have the skills, attributes and experiences that will prepare them for college, career and life. The key to our success in these endeavors is student, faculty, business and community involvement in creating a vital and stimulating learning environment.
Each of the academies within PUSD prepares students for college and career, and are aligned with college entrance requirements, industry needs, and career projections.
The College and Career Academies at Pasadena High School include the following:
