SIGNATURE ACADEMY APPLICATION PROCESS 2014
The primary focus for the teachers at Mattie T. Blount High School (BHS) is to raise student achievement by inspiring them to reach his or her greatest potential. As educators, we must supply each student with the tools necessary to equip them as life-long learners. Thus, it is the mission of BHS to provide all students with a rigorous curriculum creating an insatiable appetite for learning that leads to college and/or career readiness.
The Academies of Blount High School are designed to equip students with the components sought by business and industry. Students are given the opportunity to select from the following academies: Academy of Health Careers Access Program; Academy of Business Management Administration, Information Technology, and Marketing; Academy of Graphic & Fine Arts, Hospitality & Tourism Humanities; and the Academy of Industrial Manufacturing, Construction, and Transportation.
The BHS Signature Academy provides relevant, authentic learning that gives students real world job related experiences and allows them to pursue areas of strength. Students who are currently in the eighth grade, and do not live in the school zone served by the academy they wish to attend, are invited to apply to attend a Signature Academy. All applications must be returned to the Division of Academic Affairs by April 1, 2014. Click here to access your 2014 Signature Academy application.
