What is the Career Pathways program?

The Career Pathways program is a system created to streamline the process of attaining a practical, effective education that provides the student with the training and guidance necessary to be successful in choosing and obtaining a career.

Who can use Career Pathways?

Career Pathways can be used by students recently graduated from high school OR by adults who have been out of school for quite some time. In either case, career pathways students need to have the desire to help themselves and the desire to explore the possibilities of a new profession.

How do I get started?

Current high school students: To get started, contact your counselor at your high school to receive more information about participating in any of the career academies available at your school. College students/career academy completers: Contact your IRSC advisor to discuss how to effectively take advantage of your articulation credits.
