The Academies of Nashville was designated as the first Ford NGL Model Community in the nation in March 2014. A Model Community demonstrates innovation and success through evidence and serves as a model, inspiration, and mentor to other Ford NGL communities.

Below are 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.
