Updating Vocational Programs

Vocational programs for high schooler students are teaching how electricity makes subway cars operate, how to build a model frame home, or programming a computer controlled model ski lift through hands on experiences and advanced academic courses. Students coming out of the programs are more engaged in their learning experience. And often end up pursuing college in fields like engineering. Internships, during high school allow students to see what careers are like before they leave high school. Vocational schools used to be an alternate to college that lead directly into jobs, but now some are designed to push kids towards college while giving them a more hands on experience and specialized focus during high school to help them explore their professional pursuits.
