Choosing a Career

Our students need and deserve the opportunity to connect academic knowledge and skills to real world situations.  When these opportunities are provided, their level of understanding and application is increased and their motivation to achieve is improved. Students can learn more and see the relevance of what they learn when given the opportunity to apply knowledge and skills to real-world challenges both inside and outside of a traditional classroom setting.  Through the ECP program our students can discover how to identify personal interests, match these with a career pathway, experience the world of work first hand and plan an academic program to meet future goals.  To accomplish this, opportunities must be made available for our students to experience the world of work, and the ECP program is our common-sense approach to preparing our students to succeed in the 21st century.
