    Career Pathways, located at the Roy J. Wasson Academic Campus, offers students the opportunity to enrich their high school experience with career and technical education training in the areas of automotive technology, agriculture, business and marketing, cyber security, education, hospitality, journalism, and multi-media graphic arts design. Students throughout D11 may access the Career Pathways program, as the courses are designed to fit within each of the four main high schools’ students’ schedules. Transportation is provided to and from each of the four high schools throughout the day, so that students may easily access the Career Pathways programs. Students are taught by educators who are certified to instruct in the subject area in which they are teaching and who have worked in the field. The Career Pathways program prepares young adults to be occupationally effective, socially responsible, and functionally independent. In addition to teaching students specific occupational skills, our programs provide access to a real work environment, where students can apply those skills. Career Pathways offers on-the-job training, jobshadow internships (paid and unpaid), and field trips to the workplace. Each program is articulated with a local college or university, which allows students to receive college credit (with a B or better in their class) while still in high school—at NO COST to families. It is possible for students to earn numerous occupational certifications by the time they graduate from high school. Upon graduation, our programs qualify students for entrylevel positions and prepare students for post-secondary education, should they choose to attend a college or university.

    All Career Pathways classes work with the traditional academic programs to reach student achievement goals. All classes hold students to high academic standards, including honors courses that challenge students to perform at the highest levels.
