Career Exploration Fair

To Potential Career Academy Students:
The Career Academy (TCA) is hosting a Career Exploration Fair for students and parents to learn more about top career options and how students might plan their high school course selections.  At our fair, you can experience some of the hands-on learning available at TCA and get a better feel for how LPS juniors and seniors are “test driving” their future in one of 20 career pathways.
• Attend the Fair anytime between 1:00 – 3:00 PM on Sunday, February 11th at 88th & O.
• Park in the lower south parking lot at SCC.
• Register for prizes, meet TCA students and instructors and see why our students are choosing to “do high school differently”.
The experiences, internships, certifications, and college credits (at a 50% discount) are already making a huge difference in the future success of our students & graduates.  We hope to see you there!
