Career Pathways

Programs of Study

A Program of Study (POS) is a sequenced listing of academic and Career and Technical Education (CTE) courses that connects student’s high school and post-secondary educational experiences. By combining rigorous academics with CTE, students have a clear path to their future and are able to meet graduation requirements, earn college credits, and industry certifications as well as valuable knowledge making them college and career ready before they leave high school.

Articulation Agreements

Articulation agreements allow students to earn college credits from participation in a high school Career and Technical program or academy. Below are articulation agreements with local post-secondary institutions.

Career Pathways link secondary and post-secondary institutions to create more cohesive programs. Career Pathways stress the importance of creating a smoother transition between high school and college.



Emphasis is placed on articulation agreements, a 2 + 2 curriculum bridging the two levels of college and career preparation. Therefore the essential component of Career Pathways is the collaboration of secondary and post-secondary institutions around career preparation.
