    Our Programs

    • Construction High School Pathway Program

      This career cluster prepares learners for careers in designing, planning, managing, building and maintaining the building environment. People employed in this cluster work on new structures, restorations, additions, alterations and repairs.

      Architecture and construction comprise one of the largest industries in the United States. Based on the latest statistics, this career cluster has 13.8 million jobs. In the next few years, many new jobs will be added and many employment opportunities will result from the need to replace experienced workers who leave jobs.

    • If I Had a Hammer

      The hands-on project is part of “If I Had a Hammer,” a curriculum based around concepts in science, technology, engineering and math. Over a three-hour period, the students — with help from a few tall adults – built a full-size playhouse on the gym floor.
