17 CCPS High School NAF Academies Recognized as Model/Distinguished or Model Academies

Congratulations to all 24 CCPS NAF Academies for successfully completing the national annual academy assessment as Certified or higher.  The assessment measures an academy’s strengths and challenges in implementing results-driven educational design that prepares students for success in college and careers.  A very special congratulations to the 17 academies being recognized as either model or model/distinguished, the two highest honors awarded by NAF for delivering high quality educational experiences for high school students.  To receive this honor, not only does the academy have to provide evidence through an academy assessment but they also host a NAF team for a site visit where the academy classrooms are visited, evidence is reviewed, and academy students, teachers, school administrators, district administrators and NAF advisory partners are interviewed.
