Career Academies:

A Day-in-the-Life Experience

Maker, Baker or Health Caretaker?

Most students entering grades 6-10 have more questions than answers about choosing their future careers.

Our Career Academies provide real-life experiences that’ll help students discover their interests and a career that’s right for them.

Many involve plenty of hands-on activities, making them as active and fun as a summer camp! 

Conducted by Macomb faculty, our academies include information on the college preparation required by each career.
