 PREPARING OUR YOUTH FOR THE FUTURE 

To make informed career and educational decisions, young people need opportunities to participate in career explorations and enrichment activities.

ABOUT US

              OUR MISSION 

                  

Our mission is to ensure that students have access to high-quality pathways to success. A key part of our mission is to expose middle and high school students to 21st-century careers and trade industries. The goal is to provide an opportunity for students to explore careers and trades driven by their own interest.

                  

The earlier a student develops a viable plan for identifying a college major and related career that is compatible with their abilities, interests, and values, the better it prepares them to make decisions about high school coursework and ultimately their future.

THE FACTS

OUR PROCESS

EXPLORE

Our courses provide grade-appropriate activities that enable students to explore their personalities, necessary skill sets, and educational directions in pursuing a specific career or trade.                

ENGAGE

Through a project-based curriculum, students are fully engaged in the active learning process. The goal is to establish a classroom environment that breeds teamwork, communication, and critical thinking.

INFORM

We help students see the relevance of what they are learning and its connection to future opportunities and achievement of life goals. This will serve students in realizing not only their post-high school goals but also in other areas of their lives.

 

Because of educational innovations, our teachers are known as facilitators in learning, which means we do not operate under the traditional concept of teaching. We guide and assist students in learning for themselves—distinguishing ideas, forming their own thoughts about them, and owning materials through self-exploration and dialogue.
