College Tech Prep

General Information

Career Pathways are designed to link education and economic prosperity through multi-tier partnerships between industry, education, and community leadership.  Students are able to accelerate their learning pace through courses that offer seamless transition from high school to post-secondary education without duplicating or repeating efforts.  Work-based learning opportunities are also available for students through job shadowing, field trips, and some internships.  Participation in Career and Technical Education Student Organizations is also strongly encouraged.

Career Pathways:

  • Provide clear sequences of rigorous academic and career and technical education course work beginning in grade nine that lead to productive opportunities in high school and beyond through a focused program of study
  • Require input from education, community, and business stakeholders
  • Connect secondary and post-secondary education leading to an industry-recognized credential, certificate, and/or licensure; an Associate’s Degree; a Baccalaureate Degree and beyond
  • Are organized around broad career clusters identified at the national and state levels that puts students on paths for high skill, high wage, and high demand occupations — 2018-2019 CCS Career Clusters Chart
