Career Pathways  
 
The goal of the career pathways is to prepare all students in Greeley-Evans School District 6 for their chosen path after high school. A student’s pathway is their own unique map to their future; it is one of their first opportunities for individual ownership of where they will go in life. Career pathways take into account academic and career plans prepared by each student in order to equip them for their individual post-secondary success. Such planning and preparation will move every student forward in the direction of their career choice.
 
 
 
 
 
The Career Pathways structure is built around four central components which are all pulled together to maximize the effectiveness of the student’s educational experience in District 6. 
 
computer Core Classes: As a student progresses through their own individual career pathway there is always a strong academic focus with his/her core academic classes.  Math, Language Arts, Science, Social Studies, Health, and core electives are incorporated into a pathway so that students have the benefit of relevance and a connection between all of their classes and the role they play in a successful future.
 
compass icon Career Pathway Classes:
The Career Pathways in District 6 offer students academic opportunities in all of their high school years.  There is a consistent career focus in all of these classes as students begin with a foundational knowledge of a particular career field and then build on that knowledge and understanding as they progress through their educational experience.
 
 
conversation icons Field Opportunities: Students will have the opportunity to “learn by doing” as they participate in various types of onsite learning experiences including job shadowing and internships. These opportunities will enable students to experience career fields of interest firsthand, to ask questions and interact with professionals in their field of interest, and to take what they have learned in the classroom and apply it in a real world working environment.
 
earth icon Early College Credit: District 6 offers numerous opportunities for students to begin earning college credit prior to graduation. By participating in these courses students can get a headstart on their post-secondary education by completing college classes that are: a) part of their degree program and b) of no cost to the student.
 
 

The vision of the Career Pathways is clear:

Every student in District 6 will have limitless opportunities and limitless experiences which will open up the door to limitless possibilities.
