Insight Onsite

Small Group Study Visits 

There is no better way to understand the power and effectiveness of Career Academies than by experiencing them in person.  That is why NCAC has developed an innovative series of events that puts you right into the daily life of a highly successful Career Academy.

Insight Onsites deliver either a one or two-day intensive seminar designed to provide an in depth exploration of the college and career academy model. These unique events take place on-site at high schools across the country that have achieved the prestigious National Career Academy Coalition Model designation.  Attendees will learn how these Model Academies have embedded the ten National Standards of Practice for Career Academies (NSOP) in their Career Academy programs and how their academy was able to meet and exceed these Standards. 

Personalized Learning

To personalize the learning and to give participants time for meaningful conversations with Academy leaders, each Insight Onsite will be limited to 100 participants. Fees include all program materials and meals during event hours. (Attendees are responsible for their own travel and accommodation fees).
