College or career? Why not both?
Now, your school doesn't have to limit students to such a choice. Consider Advanced Career programs.
Advanced Career prepares students
for more options
High schools are challenged to prepare students for a wide array of postsecondary options. The workforce of today and tomorrow demands a higher level of skill — workers who grasp complexity, understand technology and troubleshoot problems.
That's where the Advanced Career (AC) program, part of the Southern Regional Education Board's (SREB) High Schools That Work initiative, shines. Advanced Career fuses a rigorous and relevant blend of technical and academic skills in authentic projects. AC courses give students a greater depth of knowledge and skills — and prepare them for more options after they graduate.
How AC works
Advanced Career combines college-ready core academic content with hands-on, project-based assignments centered around a defined career focus. Each AC program consists of four courses that emphasize college- and career-readiness standards. Students who enroll in the AC program graduate high school better prepared to start a high-value job and/or go to a four-year college, community college or a technical school.
Advanced Career provides participating high schools with:
- Ready-to-implement AC course work for students
- Comprehensive training for teachers
- Access to tools and technology for project-based learning
- End-of-course assessments
Seven AC pathway programs are available for schools to adopt:
- Advanced Manufacturing
- Aerospace Engineering
- Clean Energy Technology
- Energy and Power
- Health Informatics
- Innovations in Science and Technology
