About the Academies of Lexington
These small learning communities located within Bryan Station, Frederick Douglass, and Tates Creek high schools offer a different approach to education: one that moves away from the traditional classroom model toward a more hands-on, project-based system built around the needs of today’s world. The academies help prepare all students for life after high school by combining the academic rigor of college preparatory programs with the relevance of career-focused education. By linking academics with real-world careers and hands-on applications, our academies help students see the purpose and value of what they’re learning in the classroom.
This initiative -- sponsored by Ford Next Generation Learning -- is a partnership among Fayette County Public Schools, educators, students and families, local businesses, industry, and community leaders.
