Dear Parents and Guardians,
Welcome to the Career Education Center! We are a community of educators who are passionate about students. We are here to support each student on their path toward college and a future career. The CEC focuses on High-Quality programs for grade 11 and 12 students. We offer a variety of classes, including Advanced Welding, Auto Technology and Applied Manufacturing . We have a broad offering of courses that have been designed in collaboration with industry professionals, most including internships during the second semester. Below is a brief snapshot of some of the great reasons for students to take classes with us.
Many of our classes offer industry certifications, each recognized in the workplace, in areas such as Welding, Manufacturing, Cybersecurity, CNA, and Dental Assisting. These certifications provide students substantial accomplishments for their resume or college applications as well as support students moving directly into the workplace upon program completion.
Programs for 2020-2021 have been reviewed to align with the requirements of a high-quality CTE program as defined by the California Department of Education. All programs meet the hourly requirement of either 300 or 150 hours. Courses are designed to ensure students are prepared to advance to a post-secondary career education program and/or enter the career workforce Courses are not designed to be credit recovery options.
Summer 2020: High Schools and Districts around the county offer local CTE opportunities to include summer offerings. Please check with your home school/district to discover local Career Education programs.
