Career Exploration Trips

The Career Counselors organize and offer over 20 Career Exploration trips (field trips) per year. The goals of the trips include exposing students to real-life experiences, providing students with first-hand information on career clusters, and creating an opportunity for students to network with professionals. All trips are advertised on the morning announcements, the Daily Bulletin (found on PowerSchool), and the TV outside the Career Center. Permission slips for trips are available in the Career Center. Trips are filled on a first-come, first-serve basis for students who are in decent academic, attendance, and behavioral standing.
