About EHS Academies
EHS Academies are not stand-alone schools but consist of an integrated pathway of courses and learning opportunities within EHS.
Academy students meet the standard graduation course requirements and also participate in Academy pathway requirements.
EHS offers students the opportunity to participate in three Academy pathways:
What Are Flexible Pathways?
Integrated Academies offer pathways of courses and learning opportunities that are integrated within EHS's traditional graduation course requirements. Students meet their standard requirements, and additionally participate in Academy coursework in and out of the classroom. They are one of many pieces that reflect Flexible Pathways for Essex High School students.
Flexible Pathways is a term to describe the alternative ways that students can participate in Essex High School. Each program has different features and strengths. It is part of an initiative of the Vermont Agency of Education and Act 77, adopted in 2013. It reflects that, as unique as learners are, there are unique pathways through their educational story. The state has recognized we need to honor those different pathways.
