Careers High School is designed for high school students with emotional and behavioral difficulties who are not stimulated by scholarly learning and prefer hands-on project approaches.

Most of the students that succeed in Careers have had poor experience with schools in general and are reactive to traditional educational approaches. The students respond to the family feel of the program, the individualized educational approaches, and the strong emphasis on transitioning to successful post-secondary experiences.



Careers has three on-campus opportunities to experience and learn employable skills:   greenhouse/landscaping, desktop publishing, and culinary arts. Students learn basic employment expectations, vocabulary and experience that translate directly to the work     world. In addition, basic "soft" employment skills are built into the fabric of the program to reinforce real world expectations.



Services Offered

Careers students provide copy center services that includes custom-designed note pads, various business  forms and cards, holiday greeting cards, brochures and workshop materials at reasonable prices.  Other students are involved in hydroponic and organic gardening and will produce various herbs/plants and vegetation.
