Career Academies for Every Student
BCCHS Career Academies ensure every Bearcat graduates career, college and community ready!
The Career Academies model means that every student at BCCHS chooses a career-focused academic pathway at
the end of their ninth grade year. In grades 10–12, students receive instruction that is tailored to their interests, and opportunities to gain field-based knowledge and experience.
• Smaller learning communities, where students learn with a dedicated team of teachers and classmates who share their interests.
• A jump start into a career or college, giving every student the opportunity to earn college credit, obtain an industry certification, or craft a post-secondary plan to go on to a college or university.
• Career exploration fairs and industry field trips, to learn more about career opportunities and meet future role models.
• Job shadowing, giving students insight into the daily realities of their professions of interest while connecting with local business partners in fields connected to their pathways.
• Internships, allowing students to obtain hands-on experience and form valuable connections with industry professionals.
