Going to Carver College and Career Academy was the best decision I have ever made. I was homeschooled throughout middle school and some of high school and then I went to a public school, but I specifically chose this one. The reason this school has the best for me and has made such a huge impact on my learning abilities if because the school is education based. This school truly wants you to succeed and do well and help you to graduate early or get back on your feet. The school only has about a little over 200 students, making it a smaller environment essential for learning capabilities. The school also has amazing teachers that you will have connections with that will recognize your potential and commend you for it. There is even a program called the Champions Program that helps you prepare for jobs! This school has been everything I have ever asked for.

Carver Academy was an experience I will never forget. From the classes small enough for every student to have a connection to their instructor, to the extra curricular activities that felt less like a chore and more like family time, my four years at this school have shaped me into the person I am today. I have nothing but good things to say about my time spent here and I look forward to finding another school where I feel just as at home.
Carver College and Career Academy is an alternative magnet school that focuses on preparing kids for alternatives to college. In reality, it's adjacent to a community high school.
