    Linked Learning Academies

     
     

    Linked Learning combines rigorous academics, with career themed course and work-based learning in an academy structure.  These academies create a rigorous and relevant educational experience for students while ensuring that those involved are college and career ready.  College and career ready means students will have those work ready skills needed to be successful in today's work force, and they will be ready and able to apply to a four year university after graduation.

    Visalia Unified School District will not discriminate against any student on the basis of ethnicity, national origin, gender, disability, religion, or political beliefs.
