Exploring Career Choices

Unique Opportunities and Off-Campus Education

Off-campus education connects what students learn in school with the real world in a variety of ways, including job-shadowing, volunteering and even paid positions. It helps prepare students for the workplace through hands-on experiences. These opportunities are offered to all high school students. Get in touch with your school’s Off-campus Coordinator to register.

Two of the most popular Off-campus Education programs are:

  • Work Experience: gain on the job experience and earn up to 15 credits
  • Registered Apprenticeship Program: training with qualified journeymen instructors and earn up to 40 credits towards your diploma

Work experience and Registered Apprenticeship Program (RAP) credits can be earned through Chinook Learning Services Summer Off-campus program.

These opportunities and the ones below are offered to all high school students. Get in touch with your school’s Off-campus Coordinator to learn more and register.
