The East Forsyth High School Academy of Finance and the Carver High School Academy of Hospitality & Tourism are among a group of more than 100 career academies across the nation that have reached NAF’s model level for 2017.

NAF is formerly known as the National Academy Foundation.

These academies are being spotlighted for their excellent efforts in delivering high-quality educational experiences for high school students.

East Forsyth High School Academy of Finance has reached model status three years in a row with the Carver High School Academy of Hospitality & Tourism earning model status two years in a row.

Model level is determined by an academy’s score on the assessment, which measures strengths and challenges in implementing NAF’s results driven educational design.

The annual assessment is reviewed by NAF staff to verify that the academy is meeting fidelity to an educational design that prepares students for success in college and careers.

“This recognition is a testament to all those who help make our academy a success,” said Jennifer Schurman, the East Forsyth AOF Academy coordinator. “Without our students, teachers, business and community partners, we couldn’t achieve this level of success.”

DeWayne Tillman, the Carver AOHT Academy coordinator, states “This is going to be a stellar year for our academies. Time to push for Distinguished!”

“We are proud to spotlight our model academies who have upheld NAF’s commitment to quality and have adhered to the higher levels of assessment to reach their status. Congratulations on a job well done and we look forward to many more years of service and success,” said Katherine Blasik, vice president, Research and Evaluation at NAF.

The model academies will be recognized at NAF Next, NAF’s annual professional development conference, in Dallas, Texas, this July.

EFHS Academy of Finance and CHS Academy of Hospitality & Tourism is part of NAF, a national network of education, business, and community leaders who work together to ensure that high school students are college, career, and future ready.

Vicky Wheeler is the School-to-Career coordinator/academy director.
