The St. Johnsbury Academy Department of Career and Technical Education prepares students for both post-secondary education and the world of work. We provide educational opportunities covering industry-specific skill training and credentialing, general employability skills, academic and career skill integration, and personal enrichment to students from high schools across the region. The department prepares our students for current and future educational and workplace opportunities through hands-on learning, authentic workplace experiences, and classroom instruction.
These courses provide important benefits to students including career awareness and exploration, applied learning of academic skills, and an array of other outcomes, such as positive habits of mind, strong thinking skills, and the opportunity to learn about self and others. Some of these courses also provide in-depth knowledge and experience in a specific career field. Many courses may be taken without prerequisites.
Courses are offered in the following career clusters:
