Career Exploration

Career Exploration students may spend up to four grading periods rotating through our vocation-technical labs in nine-week sessions to learn more about the career opportunities available to them. Students in the Career Exploration program may also be placed in a structured lab setting to help them concentrate upon placement in our vocational-technical labs. After completion of the Career Exploration programs, students will focus on a career choice that will enable them to apply to a two-year JVS training program.

The Career Exploration program is designed for students who would benefit from an alternative type of high school experience or who may be deficient in credits.
