Program Description

The Career Exploration Program is designed for students who would excel in a hands-on career-based high school experience.

Career Exploration students may rotate through four different career-technical labs spending up to nine-weeks in each.  Students in the Career Exploration Program may also be placed in a structured lab setting to help them develop skills and gain the knowledge necessary for placement in our career-technical labs

After completion of the Career Exploration Program, students will focus on a career choice that will enable them to apply to a two-year career-technical program.

Students qualified to enroll in this program are:

  • 15 years old
  • Have 3-6 high school credits
To be considered for this program, students must have:
  • A school counselor recommendation
