Students take the skills they’ve learned in the classroom and apply them on the job through shadowing, internships and apprenticeships. CareerConnect's goal is to help students identify their passions, explore what they love doing and consider making a career out of it.
Last year 54% of our HS students completed at least a year in a Career Pathway!
Last year, over 550 HS students had direct contact with businesses and participated in partnerships through field trips, mentorships, internships, and apprenticeships!
