Learning Extends Beyond the Campus
Field trips and visits, job shadowing, internships and paid employment experiences give our students an edge in careers and college. The Capital Region Career & Technical Education Center partners with local business and industry to offer such opportunities, and employers from our region help us design programs to meet the changing demands of today’s workplace.
These partnerships often lead to employment opportunities post-high school and even while the students remain in school.
They also allow students to professionally network and build relationships in the industries of their choice.
