CAREER SUCCESS HIGH SCHOOL 2005-06

The faculty and staff are planning some exciting, new changes in our class offerings for next year. In talking with students, teachers and administrators we determined that the following 3 things are important in a high school education:

Academics - Core curriculum classes in English, Math, Social Studies and Science:

Skills in Reading, Writing and Math. The State of Arizona is also emphasizing this through the AIMS Testing requirement for high school graduation. Teaching and having students master the Standards for each subject is vital and a requirement for graduation.

Activities and Classes that teach Social Skills:

Elective classes of high interest to the student. Involvement and hands-on activities that promote interaction, character building and self-confidence. Activities can be project oriented that teach the life skills and build upon the academic skills learned in the core classes.

Career Focused Classes:

The World of Work awaits every student. Career Success believes that the high school experience should expose students to a career choice of their interest. The career classes will identify the student's aptitude for the career and teach the skills that will enable the student to gain an entry-level job in that career field. Through our Directed Studies Program, job shadowing, internships and/or actually working, the career teachers will act as job counselors. Actual certifications and licensing will be available in our Medical Program, (CNA, Certified Nursing Assistant), Cosmetology, Culinary, (Food Handler's Certification), Automotive and others, as we further develop programs.

Career Success High School also believes that every graduate should have a Transition Plan to continue their education either in a community college, 4-year university or trade and technical school. CSHS will make every effort to assist each graduate, along with the parent, to visit and/or learn about the college, obtain financial aid and schlorship information and prepare documents and letters of recommendation for admission.

Career Success Schools believes that:

Every Child Can Succeed

Failure is Not an Option

Young People Do Not Rise to Low Expectations

Constant Motivation is the Key and…Never, Ever Give Up
