Academy Advisory Councils
The Dripping Springs High School College
and Career Academy model design is based on the belief that students
should have the opportunity to experience a rigorous and
innovative academic program focused on their interests, which inspires
and empowers them to pursue related careers and to make significant
contributions to the global community. The concept of Dripping Springs High School Academies was developed to address academic rigor and
relevance of instruction, and to build strong and supportive
relationships between students, teachers, and the community.
An advisory council
consisting of DSISD staff, students, parents, community members, and
industry leaders guides each Academy. The Academy Advisory Councils are a critical
component of the academy model. Councils meet throughout the
year to review long and short-term academy goals, collaborate with
school personnel on mentoring/shadowing opportunities, and assist
students in cornerstone experiences.
