Effects of a Partnership Academy on School and Career Success of At-Risk High School Students

This study reports the results of 3 years of implementation of a Partnership Academy, a restructuring model for at-risk high school students at J. Sterling Morton East High School in Cicero, Illinois. Based on the California model, the partnership academy is distinguished by four features: a multi-year, school-within-a-school structure from 10th grade to graduation, integration of academic and vocational curriculum around a health and business career theme, block scheduling, and active employer involvement through job shadowing and mentoring.
