Career-integrated learning in our EXPLORE and Professional Mentorship programs prepares students for careers by actively linking academic content to creative professional fields. Students develop their interactive skill set through working on team projects, interacting with guest instructors from various professions, and receiving mentorship from experienced professionals. Students also engage in innovation and design thinking training that promotes an inventive and creative mindset to excel in any field.

All 11th grade students participate in either an EXPLORE course or Professional Mentorship experience where they receive:

  • ​Exposure to creative professional fields through guest instruction, direct mentorship, project work and site visits.

  • Interactive skillset training and feedback that will make
    the student an exceptional asset in the workplace from the first day on the job.

  • Opportunities to build and use a professional network to enhance learning and advance their career goals.


EXPLORE Courses will be available for students interested

in a wide variety of professions, including marketing and design, video production, engineering, and fashion design.


Professional Mentorship experiences with a myriad of local, creative entrepreneurs, artists, designers and engineers will also be available for students to choose from.
