The Academies of Nashville was designated as the first Ford NGL Model Community in the nation in March of 2014.

A Model Community demonstrates innovation and success through evidence

and serves as:

A Model

A Mentor

An Inspiration

See our videos for some resources that show why Nashville was selected as a model community, for it prepares its students for college, career, and life through its 33 NCAC Model Academies. Additionally, the Career Fair video highlights not only the scope of the business partnerships but also their value to the students’ education.
