Signature Programs

Sig Definition

A Signature is a 21st century workforce-relevant theme around which curricula, job shadowing, mentoring, co-curricular clubs, college courses, and internships are crafted. With a unique theme at each high school, Signature Programs are designed to excite, engage and prepare students for college and careers.

A Signature brings together educators with local business and community leaders to make classroom instruction relevant, interesting, and challenging for students with opportunities that connect to the 21st century workplace.  

 Each of the 12 comprehensive high schools in Anne Arundel County offers a unique Signature Program.  These programs align with the AACPS goals to eliminate the achievement gap by providing all students with access to rigorous coursework.
