Off Campus Education plays a vital role in enabling students to transition into the work force and post-secondary education, while gaining credits towards their high school diploma. Worksites are approved, students are evaluated and a teacher supervises the students’ experience. Students involved in the program have the opportunity to:
Earn high school credits (1 credit for every 25 hours worked, with a minimum 75 hours worked)
Acquire the skills and work habits needed to succeed after high school
Work experience allows students who have a part time job to earn credits based on the number of hours they work. Hours spent volunteering and hours worked during summer may also be eligible for this program.
Registered Apprenticeship Program (RAP)
RAP provides an opportunity for students to explore a career in the trades. Students are given assistance in finding a job in their chosen trade then spend the summer working and learning about the trade while also earning credits towards their High School diploma.
Credits can be earned in the following courses:
HCS 3000: Workplace Safety Systems (1 CTS credit)
Work Experience 15, 25 and 35 (3 – 10 credits per course)
Career Internship 10 (3 – 5 credits).
Of these credits, a total of 21 (1 CTS and 20 Work Experience) credits can be used toward the 100 credits required for a High School diploma.
*** Please note that in order to enroll in any Off Campus program, students must have first completed the CTS course, HCS 3000: Workplace Safety Systems. ***
