Futures Academy

Futures Academy Program

"Every student can learn. Just not on the same day or in the same way." – George Evans

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 from Aurora Community College, technical certificate(s) from Pickens Technical College, a GED, or a combination of the three.
