LAYC Career Academy has staff & teachers who are attentive, supportive, motivated, and always there for Students who want or need them. Giving help, attention, and support to students pursuing their education or employment futures with enthusiasm is one of the great aspects of my school.
We are an innovative model that provides youth ages 16-24 years old with college credits / AP-style classes; a rigorous and flexible GED, college preparatory curriculum; and career preparation in the healthcare and information technology fields. This school is the first in the District of Columbia to ever receive unconditional approval from the DC Public Charter School Board (DCPCSB) and the first GED school in the country to obtain a grant from the Walton Family Foundation.
Our mission is to inspire and support families to champion their children's education - at
school, at home and in their community. We are a national non-profit with offices and programs
in Oakland, Milwaukee, Washington D.C. and Indianapolis.
