Academy of Law and Public Service

Our goal is to provide our students with a strong foundation in academics within the fields of Law, Environmental Science, Computer Technology, Forensic Science,  and Social Justice. Educators, support staff, students, parents, community, and industry leaders are stakeholders in our Academy.  Teachers collaborate on project-based curricula that enrich the students’ educational experience and allow opportunities for community outreach, mentorships and internships. Academy of Law and Public Service works to provide our students with the skills needed to be highly competitive in the 21st century work-place and the global economy.
