Secondary Graduation Requirements:
The US Grant CTPD Board of Education requires all students to complete the associate school graduation requirements. In addition, programs at US Grant Career Center combine rigorous academics and technical knowledge to prepare students for higher education and pursuit of a related career in their career tech program. Students will participate in career exploration through lab activities. Students will experience guest speakers, job shadowing, and in some cases, internships. It is believed that in order to attain a broader knowledge of business and industry, all students need to learn the fundamental skills and concepts of the business sector. Students who meet the requirements have the opportunity to participate in the Early Placement Program.
