Miami-Dade County Public Schools (M-DCPS) will add four new Distinguished Academies to its existing 12 Distinguished NAF Career Academies.
M-DCPS now has 16 of the 68 nationally recognized high-quality academies, demonstrating that our career academy programs perform at the highest level in preparing students for college and careers. This national distinction is the most of any school district for delivering high-quality educational experiences for high school students.
Hialeah Gardens Senior High School added its Academy of Finance (AOF) and Academy of Hospitality (AOHT) to its other three themed Distinguished Academies, making it the first Miami-Dade high school as well as the first in the NAF network to earn this prestigious distinction for all five NAF Academy themes. The Academy of Hospitality & Tourism (AOHT) at John A. Ferguson and the Academy of Information Technology (AOIT) at William H. Turner Technical Arts Senior High School also achieved Distinguished status.

These career academies are aligned with the One Community One Goal initiative targeting major industries that impact the county’s economy.
