The annual Career & College Pathways Event, an opportunity to learn about our division's specialty programs that support high school, college, and career goals, will be offered in a virtual format this year so that students and their families can learn about our specialty programs safely from home.
This page will be updated regularly to showcase program highlight videos, featured podcasts to answer frequently asked questions (FAQs), and information about specialty program Family Information Nights to explore a specific program in more detail.
To understand the pathway from course electives to career, SCPS Career Clusters help students investigate and design their courses of study to advance their career goals. Learn more about Career Clusters and what SCPS electives connect to career pathways by visiting the Career and College Pathways page.
