Kickstart your career in high school.

If you aren’t sure what path you want to take, FUTURES is for you. Get the experience you need to make decisions about where you want to go after high school.

What is Futures?

To graduate, you’ll need to fulfill certain requirements. However, classes that meet those requirements vary considerably. Several classes meet graduation requirements, but may not help you much after high school. For example, if you take a woodworking class, is that going to help you become a dental assistant after high school?

FUTURES is a program that “clusters” classes by their field of study, so that you can better focus your high school experience and gain an advantage in pursuing your career goals. You don’t have to wait to chase your dreams. Start today.

Today’s job market is extremely competitive and constantly changing. High-paying, stable careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics are not just available to those with four-year college degrees—there are also career opportunities through apprenticeships, technical certificates, or associate degrees. FUTURES helps prepare students like you for professional and technical careers.

FUTURES programs allow you to earn dual credits—high school graduation credits and credits towards a college degree or technical certificate.

Some FUTURES programs offer paid on-the-job training in the local workforce. All FUTURES programs help you get the most out of your high school education and better prepare you for success.
