HENRY COUNTY, VA – The Career Academy of Henry County Public Schools has been named an Apple Distinguished School for the 2023–2026 program term.
Director of Career and Technical Education and Career Academy Michael Minter, Jr. said the academy was selected for this distinction based on its commitment to continuous innovation in education and using Apple products to create exemplary learning practices.
“Our goal at Career Academy is to give our students an academic advantage, whether entering college, the work force, or military,” Minter wrote in a Friday press release. “The use of Apple products and services in our classrooms allows students to become innovative and competitive leaders ready for the challenges that await them upon graduating from high school.”
Apple Distinguished Schools are centers of leadership and educational excellence, with a clear vision for how technology-rich environments support learning goals, Minter added.
The honored schools have forward-thinking leaders and their communities work to inspire, imagine, and impact teaching and learning, and they have documented results of academic accomplishments.
“Schools all over the world are using iPad and Mac to transform learning. As teachers incorporate technology into their lessons, they empower students to lead, learn, and thrive, to discover new opportunities, and to make their world a better place,” Minter stated.
The academy will be recognized for this accomplishment at the November 2 school board meeting at 5:30 p.m.
