Career Exploration Opportunities

The 21st Century Program also offers various opportunities for students to figure out what they may enjoy going into as a career. These opportunities will typically be in the form of "day camps" where we will devote a Saturday to a proposed career, helping you gain hands on experience in a field that interests you. Some career camps will be during breaks, and during those, transportation to and from the school will be provided. 

The Class of 2017 was recently surveyed for potential career interests, and the top 16 results will make themselves available as evening/day camps. To enroll, simply obtain a sign up form with Mrs. Howes in Building 3. All activities are free of charge.
