TAKE A LOOK AT WHAT OUR CTE PROGRAMS HAVE TO OFFER
PREPARING STUDENTS FOR THE WORLD OF WORK
The Advantage Academy Career Center means business. When students come to the career center, they are coming to "work." We expect students to treat their classes like jobs and meet the professional standards of their industry. We encourage all of our students to apply for Work-Based Learning opportunities to practice the technical skills they are building in their CTE programs. When they leave Advantage Academy, our students are ready for the real world. Our goal is for every student to graduate with multiple industry certifications, college credits, and a year or more of on-the-job experience in their chosen fields.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT STUDENTS FOR THE RIGHT PROGRAMS
Some programs at Advantage Academy require students to complete an application, because there are significantly more applicants than open spots. In order to land one of those coveted spots, students from Advantage Academy's three feeder high schools need to keep their grades up, practice good attendance, and keep a clean discipline record. Students must submit their application to enter the program before the due date, so please check with Guidance to find out when the due dates are.
PROVIDING WORLD-CLASS INSTRUCTION
The amazing instructors at Advantage Academy Career Center are some of the best in the state of South Carolina. They bring their technical skills and many years of industry experience into our learning labs. Instructors maintain professional ties to their industries in order to stay current on the skills their students need to succeed, the latest equipment, and the most in-demand certifications.
FOCUSING ON EMPLOYABILITY
Hiring managers are looking for technical skills, but we know they also want employees who can show up on time, work in a team, and solve problems. At Advantage Academy Career Center, we make sure students leave us with the "soft skills" that employers tell us are critical to success in their industry.
