Career Field Exploration

Exploring the 6 Career Fields

When you are 9th & 10th grader, you have the opportunity to explore all 6 different career fields. Most elective classes are 1 credit each, and with 3 trimesters in a year, you could explore all of the 6 intro classes before 11th grade! So, by the time you are in 11th & 12th grade, you already have a better idea about what you like and don't like, what classes you want more of and what classes you could do without. It all starts here. Check out the table below to see what Intro. to Panther Tracks classes are available to you and are recommended to take to explore each of the 6 Career Fields.
