Sioux City Academies

The Sioux City Community School District understands students today are entering a highly competitive global workforce. In order to be successful, students need adaptable skills and knowledge to meet the demands of the ever- changing economy. That is why we created the Sioux City Academies.

Each academy is a career-focused sequence of high school courses that integrates core academic knowledge with technical and occupational knowledge to provide students with a pathway to postsecondary education and careers.

Students take courses based on their interests and are not tied to just one career. They can explore several through our innovative Sioux City Academies while earning both high school and college credits! Our program allows students to make the connection between their education and their future with meaningful, real-world experiences.
