CAREER AND TECHNICAL EDUCATION
Shawnee Heights Career Pathways
Students, have you given some thought to a career? Parents, we are quite sure you have given some serious thought to your student’s career choice. Looking for some direction? Look no further than Career Pathways at Shawnee Heights. We have done serious planning regarding YOUR future career. We offer fourteen different pathways in the areas below:
Our goal at Shawnee Heights is to prepare ALL students to be career and college-ready upon graduation. The goal of Career Pathways is to prepare students to be career-ready by completing a Pathway in high school and transitioning to post-secondary (2-year community college, technical school, 4-year college) to continue the study of their respective careers.
Students who complete 2 courses in a Career Pathway can reap the benefits of an articulated agreement between Shawnee Heights and several post-secondary institutions in Kansas. For example, if a student completes 2 courses in our Business Finance Pathway, Washburn University will award the student 3 college credits as long as he/she enrolls at Washburn. With the climbing cost of post-secondary education, earning college credit while in high school is not only educationally advantageous but a wise financial decision.
It is never too late or too early to begin researching careers and planning a possible career path. Our goal for all Shawnee Heights students is to earn a post-secondary degree. With that in mind, we feel it is very important to start finding an interest in a career and start planning your career. We can help you with Career Pathways. If you are interested in Career Pathways or have questions about our Pathways, please contact Eric Steele, Assistant Principal firstname.lastname@example.org.
