The Riverchase Career Connection Center (RC3) opened its doors in August of 2019. The state-of-the-art skilled trades facility houses five academy programs:
- Culinary and Hospitality Academy
- Cyber Innovation Academy
- Fire Science Academy
- Health Science Academy
- Skilled Trades Academy
Multiple corporate and government business entities have partnered with Hoover City Schools to make RC3 a reality. Formerly Pelham Middle School, the facility was bought from Pelham City Schools in 2017 and completely renovated. Each academy program features high-tech simulated workspaces.
