Important Information

Reopening Plan:

After careful consideration, the LAYC Career Academy has decided to operate via distance learning through the end of December 2020. This decision was made with the safety of our students, staff and their families in mind given the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The school hopes to open in person in January 2021 and will let the community know about that decision in early December 2020.  Although the school will not be open for on-site classes, we will invite students who would like to do their work on campus to sign up for bi-weekly in person study halls.  More information on study halls will be available shortly.  Career Academy will release its formal distance learning and reopening plan  can be found on the school’s website.

Career Academy is currently enrolling students for its distance learning program, if you’re interested in enrolling, please complete this form and a staff member will contact you shortly to explain the program and get you started.
