    NAF academies are designed as small learning communities within larger schools or as stand-alone public high schools. NAF currently has academies in 36 states including DC and the US Virgin Islands. Academies in the NAF Network are formed around one of five career industries with strong employment opportunities and growth.  In addition to core academic courses, students take industry-specific classes related to these themes as well as participate in work-based learning activities to put their lessons into action.

    NAF academies are themed.  The themes are:

    –          Academies of Engineering

    –          Academies of Finance

    –          Academies of Health Sciences

    –          Academies of Hospitality and Tourism

    –          Academies of Information Technology

    Over 10,000 Dallas ISD students are served through NAF programs.  Read about NAF in Dallas ISD in our informational brochure (English version and Spanish version).
