Academy of Global Logistics at Cabrillo High

Port, School District Partnership Kicks Off

Local officials earlier this month launched the Port of Long Beach Academy of Global Logistics at Cabrillo High School, opening a new pathway to careers in international trade for young students in the city. The four-year academy, conducted in partnership with the Long Beach Unified School District, was announced in May. The “linked learning” school brings together college prep academics, demanding technical education and work-based training opportunities that prepare students for success in college, their careers and life.

“This is an exciting day,” said Board of Harbor Commissioners Vice President Lou Anne Bynum. “Our goal with the Academy is to inspire students to explore careers in the international trade and goods movement industry right in their backyard. We’d like to thank the school district for teaming up to develop the Port leaders of the future.”
