Career Pathways

MISSION STATEMENT

The mission of Career Pathways is to equip students to successfully transition into

  • postsecondary education;
  • advanced career training or employment through standards-based curriculum and hands-on integrating: academic instruction, industry-recognized career and technical skills, and workplace readiness skills.

 The Career Pathways offered at Woodlake High School serve as an avenue for students to develop their college and career readiness skills.  Career pathways provide post-secondary education and training that is well organized as a series of manageable steps leading to successively higher employment opportunities.  These career pathway programs are intended to prepare students for high-skill, high-wage jobs in emerging and growing industry sectors in the local or regional economy.

Career and Technical Education (CTE) program is not “vocational education” anymore. It is a sophisticated and effective combination of a rigorous college-prep high school academic curriculum and hands-on training in career and technical subjects and workplace competencies. Students graduate with skills matched to employer needs and the knowledge to succeed in college or other postsecondary education, advanced career training or immediate entry into jobs with a meaningful career path.  CTE prepares students for their lives beyond the classroom by equipping them with the skills and knowledge needed to succeed in postsecondary education, advanced career training or immediate entry into jobs with a meaningful career path. CTE programs combine a rigorous high school academic curriculum with training in career and technical subjects and workplace competencies.
