Simeon Career Academy is an excellent school to attend. The staff here is so helpful and nice. Everyone here is friendly and you’ll automatically become apart of the Wolverine family. This school gets us prepared for our future and career. I am now majoring in Early Childhood Education. This school provides majors that you’ll be interested in. I’m happy that I am majoring in this field because my dream is to have my own daycare. I love Simeon!

Simeon was always my dream school. Once I got here, I felt as if I automatically belonged because of what I wanted to accomplish. I started off with carpentry because I wanted to go into the apprenticeship, but after talking it over with post secondary and family, I chose to go to college for accounting. Simeon really helped me prepare for college. They helped me prepare for college by giving us lengthy papers and grading at a college level, and being hard on us about what to read, how to take proper notes, time management, and being conserving our time and energy for work and classes. Simeon has truly helped me in many ways with getting ready for college.
I had a great experience at Simeon Career Academy! There are great teachers who truly wants the students to be successful and pushes them. I've also had gained a lot of experience and knowledge through my major, which is early childhood. There are other that you can chose from, such as architecture, welding, barbering, and more. I also met a lot of friends from Simeon. I will recommend this school to every 8th grader or transfer student because it is an amazing school. You can depend on this school to help you every step of the way and help you further your education more.
