Career and Technical Education

Work-Based Learning Experiences

Career and Technical Education Pathway. (Caretakers may remember these as Vo-techs.) Engagement in the trades is something CCA can really get behind – that’s where the jobs are! But instead of a Career and Technical Center -where the road ends with Gr. 12 - CCA really leans into robust postsecondary partnerships in the trades via the Evidence-Based Graduation Pathway, where you’ll find two options:

  • “Successful completion of any concurrent or postsecondary course” allows students to begin their post-secondary studies while they’re still in high school! We call these CHS at CCA and the best part of these options are the stackable credentials students can earn. These credentials mean better jobs with higher pay!
  • “Acceptance into an institution of higher education” – this means admission to a trade or technical school, a community college, or any postsecondary school relative to the student’s interest.

Choose no more than two

  • Keystone Proficient or Advanced (Non-Numeric Proficient or NNP may also be used)
  • Service-Learning Project
  • Full-Time employment or military enlistment letter
  • Internship, Externship, Co-Op
  • Compliance with NCAA

Choose ONE or more

  • SAT Subject Test -630
  • ACT WorkKeys- Silver Level
  • AP-3 (any AP Exam)
  • IB- 3 (any IB Exam)
  • Industry-recognized credential
  • Acceptance into an institution of higher education
  • Successful completion of any
concurrent or postsecondary course

The Internship Course is offered each Fall, Spring, and Summer. Fall and Spring Semester internships take place over a 15-week period, while Summer Semester internships occur over a 6-week period. Students may identify their own internship host or select from pre-identified internship hosts**. Participating in a CCA-approved internship begins with students submitting an Internship Application.

Co-Op requires the agreement of the learner, caretaker, school, employer, and others.
