Multimedia Careers Academy Home Page
The Multimedia Careers Academy (MCA) at Leuzinger High School is an Arts, Media, and Entertainment-based California Partnership Academy. MCA students travel through four years of classes together from 9th grade (Drawing and Digital Art) to 10th (Introduction to Media Arts) and then in 11th grade students choose one of three pathways: Game Design, Digital Photography, or Digital Video Production. In addition to these electives, students enroll in core classes including English, Mathematics and Social Studies, which enable academy teachers to collaborate and integrate multimedia into the curriculum. MCA students are also exposed to industry guest speakers and field trips and participate in mentorships in 11th grade and internships in 12th grade. The MCA provides a relevant and supportive learning environment in which students develop 21st century skills, academic success, and strong relationships with teachers and peers.
