Special Programs → High School Programs → Local School Signature Programs
In addition to offering a comprehensive high school program, a number of high schools have created signature programs that integrate a specific focus or distinguishing theme with the skills, concepts, and instructional strategies of some portion of a school’s curriculum. The theme or focus becomes the vehicle for teaching the traditional high school curriculum in a fresh, interesting, and challenging way. In some cases, the school may adopt a school- wide signature focus. Some schools have also created themed academies to engage students through a small learning community approach.

This signature program strives to provide a positive and challenging learning environment that contributes to the high expectations for academic excellence and life-long learning. Students are engaged through intensive journalistic writing. The value of a visual medium is a means to foster learning for every student. Academy students work in the community, workplace, and the school cluster to disseminate effective, well-researched, exciting productions across the journalism spectrum.
