Shawnee Heights Career Pathways
Students, have you given some thought to a career? Parents, we are quite sure you have given some serious thought to your student’s career choice. Looking for some direction? Look no further than Career Pathways at Shawnee Heights. We have done serious planning regarding YOUR future career. We offer thirteen different pathways in the areas below:
Our goal at Shawnee Heights is to prepare ALL students to be career and college-ready upon graduation. The goal of Career Pathways is to prepare students to be career-ready by completing a Pathway in high school and transitioning to post-secondary (2-year community college, technical school, 4-year college) to continue the study of their respective career.
Students who complete 2 courses in a Career Pathway can reap the benefits of an articulated agreement between Shawnee Heights and several post-secondary institutions in Kansas. For example, if a student completes 2 courses in our Business Finance Pathway, Washburn University will award the student 3 college credits as long as he/she enrolls at Washburn. With the climbing cost of post-secondary education, earning college credit while in high school is not only educationally advantageous but a wise financial decision.
