A Modern Approach to High School
You may have heard of career and technical education (CTE), or vo-tech, or other programs that are preparing students for jobs right out of high school. Many of these programs are rooted in the industrial economy of the past and are conducted using traditional methods that rely on textbook-based content, teacher-driven learning, and defined courses for specific skills and trades.
Career readiness education is Destinations Career Academy’s unique, modern approach to giving high school students a clear path to a successful future. Destinations provides students guided career exploration, in-depth technical and professional skill building, real-world learning experiences, and preparation for a high-demand career in the field of their choice.*
