Baldwin School District is the only school district in New York State that offers a wide array of Career Academies beginning in grade 8 and continuing through grade 12.
Eighth grade students at Baldwin Middle School have the opportunity to participate in pre-academy classes, which are available during period 9 on a rotating schedule, as an enriching introduction to the Baldwin High School Career Academy program. Once students enter Baldwin High School, they partake in traditional high school coursework, which includes college credit bearing electives, shadow experiences, and internships specific to STEM/Engineering, Global Business, Government/Law, or Medical/Health Sciences.
Over the past 20 years, Baldwin School District has built robust school-to-career partnerships, many of which open their doors only to Baldwin students. These partners include Northrop Grumman, Citicorp, State Farm Insurance, Mercy Medical Center, Hofstra University, Northwell Hospitals, National Grid, Junior Achievement, South Nassau Communities Hospital, Molloy College, Long Island STEM Hub, Jack and Jill of America, Jones Beach State Park, Republic Airport, Adelphi University, SUNY Stony Brook, NYIT, and Fed Ex. School-to-career activities include shadow days, internships, work experience, mentoring, career fairs, leadershp summits, and competitions.
Additionally, through grant funding, a new television studio has been unveiled at the high school this fall for use by all academic classes and will serve as the foundation for the New Media Career Academy that will be offered to students in the 2016-17 school year.
