Mission Statement

The mission of School-to-Career is to prepare every student to make knowledgeable career choices through academic rigor and work-based learning experiences. This requires a systematic, comprehensive, community-wide effort.

Description

School-to-Career (STC) is an initiative - a philosophy - a method of delivering curriculum to students that links what students learn in the classroom to what they will do in their lives after graduation. Children learn better when information is made relevant, and STC ensures that relevancy occurs by linking their schoolwork to workplace realities.

School-to-Career links the world of school to the world of work by supporting school-based activities such as classroom speakers, tutors and mentors, professional development, and real world activities infused into the standard course of study through collaboration between members of the business community and classroom teachers.

Work-based learning experiences are another valuable component of the School-to-Career program. Students who participate in work-based learning experiences are prepared to be career focused and globally competitive.

Work-based learning experiences provide an integration of core and technical instruction, which enhances the overall curriculum, increases learning, promotes instructional rigor and meets the educational needs of all students. Job shadowing and internships are two common work-based learning experiences that our students participate in.
