Mrs. Jara Parrish
Welcome BEARS!

I am your CCAT (College, Career, Application and Technology) teacher. Please contact me by phone or email if you have any questions. I am so excited about having your child in my class. It is going to be a great year and I want to thank you now for all of your future support. Working together as a team only leads to success!!!

This course was developed in response to House Bill 5 (HB5) legislation that came into law in the Spring of 2014. Freshmen are required to have a Personal Graduation Plan (PGP) with a selected endorsement that drives their personal career path interests. CCAT is a LVJH mandatory 8th grade course that was designed to increase student awareness of post-secondary options and available career pathways. This knowledge will enable the student to choose an endorsement that tailors to the individual personal graduation plan before leaving 8th grade. Students will also gain the practical and technological skills through project based learning and book studies that will facilitate preparation for their chosen career and beyond.
