In addition to their lab, students take academic classes. Physical Education and Health are not offered at the Career Center.


Applicants should have met the graduation requirements for freshmen and sophomores as set by their high schools. This means that they should have completed courses in English, Social Studies, Math, Science, Physical Education and Health. Students deficient in required credits may need to attend summer school, be privately tutored, or take correspondence courses to meet graduation requirements.
