The Academies of Shakopee are small learning communities that are organized around a student’s areas of interest.
The academy concept came from the desire for small, real-world learning communities in a large high school. The Academies of Shakopee will be implemented in the fall of 2018 when the expanded high school opens.
Students will have the opportunity to connect with others who have similar aspirations, and with teachers who can make meaningful connections to their plans for the future.
The Academies of Shakopee logo comes in several configurations and is the primary mark used to identify the program.
Each of the seven academies is identified by its own color and icon. These will be used to distinguish communications from each individual academy and to identify each within the new school building.Academies Colors
