New! Pre-Vocational Exploration Course

New for fall 2023-2024 - enrolling in winter 2022!

Pre-Vocational Exploration

This exciting, all-new program opens the doors to the Tech Center like never before, creating an option for students who are ready to learn the very basics of being a good employee, including:

  • following directions
  • the importance of attendance
  • completing tasks
  • following safety rules

Students in this year-long program explore one of the following areas each quarter:

  • Human Services (teaching, childcare, hospitality)
  • Industrial Technology (automotive, manufacturing, construction)
  • Business Services (marketing, retail, office services)
  • General vocational skill development (work safety, work culture)

Like our Intro to Career Technical Education and traditional programs, students learn in the classroom and get hands-on experience in our labs. They also continue the development of their Educational Development Plan (EDP), post-secondary education and work goals, and any Transition Plan activities. 

Students who successfully complete this program have several options for their next step. 

*The Pre-Vocational Exploration program is not a state-approved CTE program. Completion of the program counts as elective credit.
