Eighth graders from area schools got to take a peek at what the future might look like in fifteen different careers, as they visited the career technical labs at Vantage just a few days ago.
Each school in the Vantage district brings their 8th graders to Vantage for a career exploration activity, which involves a two-hour demonstration tour. Eighth graders receive a “mini-brochure” which describes the career technical programs and explains what a typical day is like for students who attend Vantage. The eighth graders spend a little time in each lab and return home with a better idea of what goes on in this big, new school.
This career exploration activity is especially helpful by informing the students about all the options available to them. During the visit, the eighth graders are able to see what skills are being used in different career areas. Students may also become more aware of how their interests and abilities can be developed into a rewarding career.
It’s always fun hosting the 8th graders and giving them a chance to see what career technical education at Vantage Career Center is all about!
