Linked Learning Following the National Academy Foundation (NAF) Model

In our Linked Learning Career Pathways program, our students receive career-themed college preparation in small learning communities. We blend academic rigor with fundamentals, projects, presentations, and hands-on experiences. TJUHSD will take steps to ensure that a lack of English will not be a barrier to admission and participation in district programs.

Currently our students enjoy the following Linked Learning Career Pathways programs:

  • Academy of Engineering (AOE) - Mission Oak High School
  • Pre-Med Academy (PMA) - Tulare Western High School
  • Art Media & Entertainment (AME) - Tulare Union High School
  • Protective Services and Law (PSL) - Mission Oak High School
