Career and Technology Programs
- Dual Credit creates opportunities for students to earn credits in high school and post-secondary institutions at the same time. It also provides opportunities for preferred placement (post-secondary course exemption) and workplace certification.
- The Registered Apprenticeship Program (RAP) is an apprenticeship program for high school students that allows them to identify their career interests at an earlier age and prepares them to learn and practice their future trade while still in high school.
- Career and Technology Foundations (CTF) provides students in grades 5 to 9 the opportunity to explore their interests and career possibilities.
- Career and Technology Studies (CTS) is designed for high school students so they can explore their interests and career options. CTS offers students opportunities to develop skills that can be applied in their daily lives and improve their employability following high school.
- Off-campus education provides opportunities for junior and senior high school students to explore and expand their career interests, skills and knowledge related to work and other life roles.
