As early as a high school student’s sophomore year, post-graduation plans are discussed and college visits are the norm. For students who are motivated about their futures, want to explore their career options, or who have a clear dream they want to achieve, one option they should consider is attending a career and technical school like the Upper Valley Career Center.
At Upper Valley CC, which is located in Piqua, high school students can begin their career pathway, earn college credits and start to work in their desired field — all while remaining active in sports and other activities at their home school.
The school offers 25 programs within 12 career clusters. A wide range of programs are available including pre-engineering, manufacturing, welding, culinary arts, early childhood education, exercise science, and veterinary science and electronics.
