Career Exploration gives students a chance to “test drive” the Career and Technical Education programs of their choosing. Students will experience a variety of course offerings with the purpose of helping them make decisions concerning their future educational program. Students follow a set of objectives and complete projects designed for them within the various career and technical education classrooms. Students may explore up to eight different occupational programs for five weeks each. At the end of each module, the teacher evaluates basic skills, career awareness, adherence to safety regulations, degree of interest and aptitude. Based on evaluations, home school counselors place students in appropriate career and technical education courses for their juniors and senior years.
