What is the Public Safety Academy?
Concord High School is the first school in North Carolina to offer a Public Safety Academy. The Academy will develop and guide interested students toward a career in public safety through academics, personal development and in-depth education which will prepare the students to be college and career ready.
Any rising 9th is eligible to join the Public Safety Academy. Students who are admitted to the career academy will begin taking an entry level career/academic cohort class to show the applications of academics in real-world situations. After investigating their career interests and completing an entry level career academy course, students agree to commit to the career academy for the remainder of their academic career.
SkillsUSA is the student organization for law, public safety, corrections and security for the Public Safety Academy, along with other program areas. They provide opportunities for hands-on learning, and for applying career, leadership and personal skills in real-world environments. Participants build their skills by developing projects, attending events, and competing regionally and nationally.
- Transportation is not provided unless a student lives within the home school attendance boundary.
