Career preparation is a large part of the education students receive while enrolled in the Academy. There are multiple components of Career Development including:
- Career Exploration: Students get involved in career activities such as interest inventories, career research and Person Centered Planning.
- Person Centered Planning: Students set goals and create a visual PATH to success while identifying available resources and supports
- Job Readiness Training: Students develop appropriate work behaviors while training in on-campus departments. When the student is ready, Academy staff will assist them in developing employment opportunities in the community.
- Career Development Class: Students learn job search skills such as resume writing, mock interviews, and creating a career portfolio. Students meet weekly to discuss issues and receive training about specific skills or career development.
