The scheme is a further development in Liverpool's partnership with BT, which saw the council and the company agree to form an IT joint venture company in the Spring (LGC, 10 May).
City Academies - a government initiative - aim to replace struggling schools in deprived urban areas.
Liverpool leader Mike Storey said: 'Education must be at the heart of any regeneration and this scheme will build on the ground-breaking partnerships we have already formed with the private sector.'
Derek Metcalfe, BT's head of joint partnerships and ventures, said: 'We are delighted to be extending our partnership with Liverpool City Council. It's a very exciting opportunity. It is an early example of the new joint venture between BT and the city council coming to fruition.'
