A high school in Georgia offers practical training in a wide range of career fields. Students can take courses in one of six academies at the school, where they take part in hands-on learning activities, such as investigating mock crimes, building and selling small houses, and administering health care to simulated patients. "Our goal has been getting students a skill and a credential that puts them above just the entry-level job, including if they're using that to pay for college," said Rachel Baldwin, the school's career-instructional specialist.
