Oregon Online School Expands Workforce Options Giving Students a Path To Their Future
PRINEVILLE, Ore.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Cascade Virtual Academy (CVA) and Insight School of Oregon – Painted Hills (ISOR-PH), are expanding their Career Prep options early in the new school year. Students in middle school will be offered career explorations where they can find out first-hand what it’s like to have a career in fields such as teaching, business, government, hospitality, health science, IT, and more! This will give them valuable insight into how it all works and potentially setting them on a path towards their future.
In addition, students on track in high school can also take expanded Career Prep courses in both CVA and ISOR to match what is already available for students at their sister school, Destinations Career Academy of Oregon (ORDCA).
ORDCA provides students with exposure to skills in Business and Management, Health Services, and Arts, Information, and Communication.
In addition to career focused courses, students who attend all three Oregon schools can earn college credits while still in high school. Eligible students are able to enroll in a combined number of high school and college courses per semester, giving them a head start in their state and potentially saving them thousands of dollars in college tuition costs.
“Never be afraid to fail. Don’t just wonder what you want to do when you grow up, try it out,” said Melissa Hausmann, Head of School. “Explore all your options and find your path. Experiment. Learn something new. And do it all while you’re still in school.”
