The Cascades Job Corps College and Career Academy is located in Sedro-Woolley, Washington, approximately 70 miles north of Seattle. The Cascades Academy is a Pilot Project developed by the National Office of Job Corps to test and evaluate innovative models for Job Corps eligible youth. The focus is on academic and CTT training for 16 to 21 year olds.
The Cascades Academy will provide training in the Health Care and Information Technology Pathways. As a Pilot project, the Cascades Academy will test a number of pre-admissions procedures, new student intake processes based on industry cohorts and foundations courses, require mandatory Evening Studies program and take a slightly different approach to CTT progression.
The Cascades Academy will partner with Sedro-Woolley Public Schools, the Northwest Career & Technical Academy and Skagit Valley College to provide Career and Technical Education which provide students with college credits, certifications and credentials.
