What is Work Based Learning?
Students in the WBL program graduate from high school with real-world work experience. They leave high school with an advantage: Office Certifications (Word, Excel, and/or Powerpoint), armed with work skills and community service/volunteer experience, a professional resume and career portfolio, interviewing skills, and the ability to make clear, well thought out decisions about their career aspirations. In addition to work experience, leadership development, as well as career and college exploration, at least 98% of WBL students (office aides & off-campus) receive multiple college acceptances and attend 2- and 4-year colleges and universities. Our students have taken HONORS and AP classes. Additionally, each year there are several honor graduates that complete the program. These students also actively participate in our nationally recognized Career and Technical Education Student Associations (DECA, FBLA, FCCLA, FEA,. Skills USA, and TSA).
