The Journalism & Media Academy Magnet School is the only school of its kind in the nation. It offers students unprecedented opportunity as they prepare for college and the world beyond.

The Journalism & Media Academy Magnet School opened the 2013-2014 school year in a new, state-of-the art facility with an on-site television studio, a working radio station, extensive technology for broadcast, film making, graphic and web design and social media development.

Students benefit from a college-ready curriculum, infused with media literacy, and are exposed to reading and writing for various formats while learning to understand the language, power and business of the media world.

A partnership with Connecticut Public Broadcasting Network offers students a new and exciting learning environment, where core curriculum is combined with must-have understanding of the role of media across industries.  Seniors spend their time at CPBN's spectacular satellite campus, working with industry experts to further their individual passions, and continuing to strengthen their academic development. Senior year at the Academy is essentially an intensive internship where students create professional-level media projects and a portfolio of work to present to colleges and potential employers, amid an environment infused with academic excellence.

Students develop workplace and college readiness competencies through curriculum, job shadowing and internships - and hands-on experience.
