To guide students through our robust Program of Studies, including over 150 academic courses, students embark on a Career & College Pathway designed to best prepare them for their future, whether it be in a career field, post-secondary education, or the military.
We strive to prepare every student for 21st century careers by providing opportunities to gain college credits and/or workforce certifications through access to 20 Advanced Placement courses, Project Lead the Way courses in Engineering, College in High School courses, our Zulama Gaming Academy, our partnership with Parkway CTC, and dual enrollment opportunities with local universities.
