Every year, the Academies of Nashville has visitors from all across the country who are interested in learning about the career academy model. These visitors come from all over the country and spend three days learning about all aspects of our schools. Over the years, these visits have generated thousands of dollar for our schools. One way this money is distributed is through the Starr Awards. This week, 22 programs were awarded more than $37,000 in grants to implement projects this year, attend experiential learning opportunities, and a number of other initiatives. Congratulations to all of our Academies and Teachers who received a Starr Award this year!
