Career Readiness Academy

Welcome to the Lakota Career Readiness Academy, a personalized approach to school.

The Career Readiness Academy (CRA) provides students with an innovative, flexible, student-centered learning community environment. Our goal is that each student will graduate with the skills and preparation to take the next step toward a career or college opportunity. 

At the Career Readiness Academy, we strive to meet students where they are at and personalize their learning experience by creating a personalized learning plan for all students. We offer learner-centered, real world learning experiences, which ignite passion and growth in every student.

Here at the Academy, we understand that sometimes students need something different due to a variety of situations.
We offer small classes, project-based learning, blended learning, online courses, and flexible schedule options, along with online options.

We look forward to the school year and working with you and your student. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out either via email at or by calling the office at 513-682-4117.
