For several years, the school has offered a Dual Enrollment program in partnership with Mohave Community College (MCC) that allows students to take college courses on the high school campus while receiving high school and college credit. The program has been highly successful, with more than half of the 2019 graduating class leaving MALC with some college credit already under their belts. The school now offers more than 20 Dual Enrollment courses as part of their regular schedule.
Mohave Accelerated has also partnered with the Western Arizona Vocational Education (WAVE) Joint Technical District to help provide better vocational and technical education. Through the WAVE partnership, MALC students are able to take vocational courses at the local MCC campus after school hours at no cost. Last year, Mohave Accelerated students utilized the program to take courses in welding, automotive repair, business and the community colleges CNA program.
Additionally, MALC is partnering with WAVE to offer several Career and Technical Education (CTE) courses for the upcoming school year. Students will have the opportunity to receive specialized training from skilled instructors in several areas, including construction, business, and culinary arts. CTE classes provide students with marketable workforce skills and help prepare them for college courses in their field of interest.
Looking past their prep programs, they have worked diligently to create a great environment for a true quality education.
The school has invested heavily in technology with computer labs and screen projectors in nearly every classroom.Cloud-based tools like Microsoft Office 365 extend the learning process beyond the school hours and location. More importantly, MALC prides itself on building a highly qualified instructional staff with years of experience and a genuine love for teaching. Quite simply, Mohave Accelerated teachers care deeply about their students, and the school’s smaller class sizes allow them to give everyone the attention they need and deserve.
MALC has a lot to offer outside of the classroom as well. They are a member of the Arizona Interscholastic Association and offers a variety of interscholastic sports including: football, volleyball, golf, basketball, baseball and softball. In addition, a number of extracurricular clubs are available, such as Kiwanis Key Club, Rotary Interact Club, National Honor Society, Student Council, and more. Odyssey of the Mind, a club devoted to creative problem solving, competed against other schools in the spring to qualify for the World Finals. The school’s STEAM Club (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) took a trip this summer to Washington, D.C. and New York City, and the Travel Club plans a trip abroad each year.
