I am planning on attending a 4-year college. Does the Career Center have any programs for me?

A college connection exists for all programs at the Tech Center; college credit can be earned through articulation agreements.

- Students interested in computer science should consider Honors Honors Computer Technology (Level I) and AP Computer Technology (Level II).

- Students interested in computer systems and networking should consider the globally recognized Cisco Networking Academy.

- Students interested in engineering should consider Project Lead the Way (which carries Transcripted Credit from RIT and is on the 5.0 weighted GPA scale for four of its classes).

- Students interested in graphic arts and design should consider Print Production.

- Students interested in a medical field should consider Academy of Health Professionals (honors level) or Biomedical Sciences (AP level).

- Students interested in television or film production should consider Video Production.
 


I am planning on career in the health field. Why should I consider the Academy of Health Professions program?

- The Academy of Health Professions program includes Honors Foundations of Medicine and Health Science (1 credit) and Honors Structures and Functions of the Human Body (1 credit). Our students even have the opportunity to focus on Surgical Tech (3 credits) or Health Care Tech (3 credits) during their spring semester depending on their performance in the fall. All qualified students participate in an internship during the spring of their senior year.

- Students receive actual clinical experiences where they can explore the very career they are planning to go into for college. Students can select either CNA: Theory and Clinical Experience (1 credit) or Physical Rehabilitation ( 1 credit).

- When a student applies for the nursing program after graduation they have an advantage because they have already provided direct patient care and are comfortable doing so- they ultimately will be more successful in the nursing program or physical rehabilitation career field.

- We have students in nursing programs at Towson, University, Salisbury University, Catholic University, Stevenson University, York College, East Carolina University, Queens University, Naumann University, and West Virginia University, just to name a few. Again, many of these students were accepted directly into the nursing program.

- One student was accepted directly into the physical therapy program at Lebanon Valley. It is an excellent program that only accepts a small percentage of applicants each year. Her mother wrote to thank Mrs. Sullivan, AHP instructor, and credited our program as one of the reasons for her daughter's opportunity. Other students were also accepted directly into their physical therapy program at Bridgewater and Shenandoah University.
