M-DCPS Superintendent celebrates opening of two new academies

On Monday, Superintendent of Schools Alberto M. Carvalho, celebrated the opening of two new academies that will prepare students from  Miami Central SHS, Ronald Reagan/Doral SHS and Alonzo & Tracy Mourning SHS for careers in cybersecurity and trade and logistics.

These are two of the most in-demand fields in Miami-Dade, according to the skills gap report produced by JPMC’s New Skills at Work local initiative and information from One Community One Goal.

The new Academies are supported by a $230,000 grant from JPMorgan Chase and will help expand participation from the city’s diverse youth in these industries.

Carvalho was joined by school Board members, community leaders, district and school administrators, teachers, and students of Miami Central Senior High School, Alonzo & Tracy Mourning Senior High School and Ronald Reagan/Doral Senior High School.
