Creative Learning Academy (CLA)
The Career & Academic Development Institute and The Creative Learning Academy are two of the accelerated, alternative high schools within the School District of Philadelphia, managed by OIC of America. The schools provide academic and developmental transitional services to diverse student populations with many coming from low income and underserved communities. CADI and CLA provide educational services to over-age under-credentialed students who are returning to high school to earn their diploma. The schools offer a variety of teacher-led classes, web-based instruction and extra-curricular activities to ensure that students are engaged. Upon entrance, each student selects a post-secondary option (pre-college, trade school, or workforce) and is given the appropriate exposure and classroom activities to complement their chosen option. Funded by the School District of Philadelphia.
