Creating Stimulating Futures

One of Brook Road Academy’s most unique aspects is our commitment to helping students reach their individual goals after high school.  We don’t take a “one size fits all” approach. Whether planning to enter college or the workforce, students can explore options and build on their interests through our Career and Transition Services (CATS).

As an optional program, CATS is designed to help each student envision and attain a productive and stimulating future. Our staff conduct a skills assessment and help students identify careers where they can excel. With the support of job coaches, CATS participants get first-hand learning experiences through on- and off-campus internships,  interactive presentations by industry professionals, and college tours.

We partner with local businesses and colleges to give participants experience in real-world work and education environments. Our growing list of CATS partners includes:

  • In Your Ear Music and Video Production
  • Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens
  • Richmond Animal Care and Control
  • SunTrust
  • University of Richmond
  • Virginia Commonwealth University

For more information, please contact Matthew Kreydatus, Director of Career and Transition Services at 804-553-3224.
