Digital Media Career Academy
The Millbrook Magnet High School Digital Media Career Academy is focused on career fields related to graphics, animation, audio, and video creation. Being a part of the academy program provides students with:
- Increased rigor in curriculum focused on student interest
- Peers with similar interests and dedication
- Field experiences, guest speakers, job shadowing related to the Digital Media career field
- Industry Certifications in Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign and Premiere
Career Academies are personalized small learning communities within a school comprised of a small group of students and teachers for four years. Academy classes are usually blocked back-to-back in the daily schedule, and students attend them as a group. Students are able to complete academy requirements within the regular school day, with the exception of work internships. The DMCA at Millbrook is being phased out with the class of 2026 being the last graduating class. The Sustainable Agriculture Academy is now taking applications for rising freshman.
Students who are admitted to the Career Academy will begin taking a sophomore-level career/academic cohort class to show the applications of academics in real-world situations. After investigating their career interests and completing an entry-level career academy course, students agree to commit to the Career Academy for the remainder of their academic career. This commitment will culminate in an internship during the student's senior year at a local business to see how all of their studies apply in a “real world” situation.
In compliance with federal law, Wake County Public School System administers all education programs, employment activities, and admissions without discrimination against any person on the basis of gender, race, color, religion, national origin, age or disability.
