TMCF Collegiate Academies are a new national network of secondary schools. These ‘blended’ secondary schools will be located on or near the campuses of TMCF member-schools, and will deliver students a rigorous college preparatory curriculum, while also addressing 21st Century learning needs.
Two additional components round out the program. The first establishes a professional pipeline for public HBCU member-school students and alumni with Connections Education, and the second spotlights prominent public HBCU alumni and other notable African Americans, via a web-based leadership series for the 40,000-plus students enrolled in Connections Education’s national network of Connections Academy virtual public schools and Nexus Academy blended public schools.
