How Does Career Education Work to Prepare Students for Careers AND College?

Career Education (CE) is delivered in two models, Pathways or Academies.

CTE CNC Machine and Student

The CE Pathway Model

Pathways are 2-3 years of a single industry-based class, that apply academia and career skills training for a rich student experience of project-based coursework.

  • Students have the freedom to choose their other academic courses, allowing them to take University of California (UC) compliant Advance Placement (AP), World Language, Math, and English based on their skill level.
  • Students are encouraged to complete pathways but can choose another course of study if they desire.
  • Includes a number of Work-Based Learning (WBL) opportunities and experiences, including guest speakers, mock interviews, field trips, job shadowing, internships, and top students can earn an apprenticeship with local businesses.

Ultimately, students will graduate with workplace skills and experience, while completing requirements to attend the college of their choice. 

The CE Academy Model

Academies are 3-4-year programs that include a CE pathway and a prescribed program of academic courses. This model is a school within a school, perfect for small learning communities and students at risk of not completing high school.

  • Students stay together for 3-4 periods a day throughout the life of the academy and will stay in this sequence until graduation.
  • Academic programs are characterized by rigorous, University of California (UC) compliant courses that utilize Project-Based Learning (PBL) activities and CE themes blended into academic coursework.
  • A number of Work-Based Learning (WBL) opportunities and experiences, including guest speakers, mock interviews, field trips, job shadowing, internships, and top students can earn an apprenticeship with local businesses.

Ultimately, students will graduate with workplace skills and experience, while completing requirements to attend their college of their choice.
