Ascend students will be part of a smaller group of ORCA students that will have a unique high school journey. While they will have some extra expectations during high school, they will have the close support of teachers that have worked in the industry that they are teaching.
Ascend students will have have the opportunities for more hands-on learning and will be expected to take part in an internship, or some outside-the-walls learning, during their senior year. They will also have opportunities to be a part of national student organizations while in high school.
In many cases, Ascend students will have the opportunities to obtain industry certificates and participate in college level courses in their field of study.
Students can apply for the CTE program during their freshman and sophomore years. Please contact us if you have any questions.
