Academy of Global Logistics
The Port of Long Beach Academy of Global Logistics at Cabrillo High School (AGL), a partnership with the Long Beach Unified School District, combines academic curriculum with industry-relevant training and information to support academic and career development.
The Academy builds on the Long Beach College Promise by introducing high school students to career opportunities in global trade and logistics and showing them how to prepare for those careers through a wide range of training and education programs including certificates, certifications, and degrees offered by Long Beach City College and California State University, Long Beach. The goals are to:
EXCITE – Create excitement around international trade, logistics and supply chain management by bringing real world experiences to the classroom.
ENGAGE – Engage parents, students, teachers and administrators, industry partners, and the community in program events to develop a support system for student success.
EMPOWER – Empower students with the knowledge and skills for entry level career opportunities and/or to pursue higher education either at a community college or four-year university.

AGL NEWS and Events
The Virtual Enterprise Long Beach trade show will be held on February 11, 2016 at the Long Beach Convention Center downtown Long Beach on Pine Street. The bus will pick the students up a 7:00 am and will return the students at 3:00 pm
The Trade show gives the students the opportunity to develop real-world skills in a simulated environment. The students in the Virtual Enterprise course have been learning business skills in the classroom and the trade fair gives the students a chance to actually demonstrate these skills with business professionals. This event gives the students a chance to illustrate what they have learned in a sheltered situation and then to receive feedback on the steps to improve when it comes to the “real world.”
