Program Overview

Futures Academy serves students ages 17 to 21, who have too few credits to receive a traditional high school diploma, but are still interested in furthering their education and pursuing a post-secondary degree.

Through a partnership with CYC and Aurora Public Schools, students are provided the resources, guidance, and targeted academic instruction that will allow them to leave Futures Academy with an associate degree, a Pickens Technical Certificate, a GED, or a combination of the three.
