CAREER PROGRAMS AND PATHWAYS
Port Charlotte High School’s “Career Programs and Pathways” prepares students for careers after high school. The program was created to allow students early exploration and experience in the career paths of their choice. The focus of the program reflects different career areas which offer great
opportunities for the twenty-first century.
Introductory courses and comprehensive electives in a variety of career fields are offered. Each program’s experience provides the student with hands-on application. Students choose a career
pathway and are encouraged to follow it their tenth, eleventh, and twelfth grade years finishing with the possibility of certification, employability skills, college credit and/or post-graduate scholarships for continued study at colleges and universities. Many students receive a head start on their post-secondary goals with dual
enrollment courses available at both Charlotte Technical Center and Edison College. Executive Intern opportunities are available to
twelfth grade students in all program areas.
