Let’s face it… planning for a career is a critical decision for our students, and they can’t wait until high school to start exploring careers. When we help students navigate their options and provide relevant classroom experiences, students are more apt to find their passion for a career.
That’s where you come in! To better prepare our students for a smoother transition from school to college and career, we are hosting Career Connections for our Career Academy 8th graders! Career Connections is a district initiative to promote career awareness for middle schoolers who feed into our seven College and Career Academy high schools: Berkmar, Central Gwinnett, Discovery, Lanier, Meadowcreek, Shiloh, and South Gwinnett. With a College and Career Academy model, schools can accelerate academic work, better prepare our students for college and careers, improve the graduation rate, and assist our students in making knowledgeable career decisions for a successful future.
- Over 5,000 students from 11 different middle schools are excited to learn about your career field!
- Approximately 200 local businesses create a "show and tell" experience for our students, exposing them to career options beyond high school and college.
- Each exhibitor will have a 10" x 10' booth with power and WiFi connectivity. A light breakfast and lunch will be provided.
- Participation is free and is greatly appreciated!
Your company can be an important part of the College and Career Academy experience.
