Middle School Programming

DCPS’ CTE department is proud to offer career awareness and exposure to middle school students!

In the 2020-21 school year, 8th grade students attending DCPS schools will receive a personalized Guide to College and Career Academies. This guide shares information about the NAF College and Career Academies available at the student’s in-boundary school and high schools across DCPS.
