January 27, 2015 — Healdsburg High School's Marketing and Entrepreneurship in Agriculture and Tourism (META) Academy initiative received a $35,000 Specialized Secondary Program grant through The California Department of Education. META Academy offers a new standards-based curriculum that gives students the opportunity to study agriculture-based hospitality and tourism, anchors of Healdsburg's economy.
"META Academy is truly a pioneering program for the state of California," said Jeff Harding, HUSD Superintendent. "We received overwhelming support from local businesses, the local junior college, and town government for our new program that will provide meaningful connections between a rigorous standards-based high school program and post-secondary training, education, and employment."
META Academy is among the first programs in California to integrate traditionally elective courses of Culinary Arts, Agriculture, and Hospitality with hands-on academic and career-oriented instruction linked to the local community. META Academy students will take traditional courses, such as English, with an emphasis on marketing strategies, agricultural issues, sustainability, culture of tourism, personal career exploration, and internships. Working in collaboration with Santa Rosa Junior College, Healdsburg High School is exploring course and credit opportunities for META students. META Academy students will graduate prepared to continue studies in a post-secondary institution or to begin their career in the vast industry of culinary arts, agriculture, viticulture, hospitality, or tourism.
"META Academy challenges students in a dynamic, project-based environment focused on the thriving Sonoma County industries of hospitality and agriculture," said Chris Vanden Heuvel, Healdsburg High School Principal. "Students will participate in engaging experiences in collaboration with local industry allowing them to prepare for their life beyond graduation."
