Students exit our programs prepared for college and career with a strong academic background, the knowledge of the opportunities and requirements for a career, and with valuable workplace skills. When industry and academia are combined, students understand the importance of learning and how it applies to their future careers and studies.

Career Education (CE) is delivered in two models, Pathways or Academies.
Pathways are 2-3 years of a single industry-based class, that apply academia and career skills training for a rich student experience of project-based coursework.
Ultimately, students will graduate with workplace skills and experience, while completing requirements to attend the college of their choice.
Academies are 3-4-year programs that include a CE pathway and a prescribed program of academic courses. This model is a school within a school, perfect for small learning communities and students at risk of not completing high school.
Ultimately, students will graduate with workplace skills and experience, while completing requirements to attend their college of their choice.
