Did you know that 44.2 million Americans have $1.44 trillion in U.S. student loan debt? And did you know that only 33 percent of today’s jobs require a four-year degree?

These facts, combined with the statistic that it often takes six years for a high school graduate to earn a college degree, are daunting.

There are other options out there. One of the academic opportunities available for high school students is the chance to attend Parkway West Career and Technology Center. The daily, half day program offers hands-on instruction in 14 career majors ranging from auto body repair, health care, HVAC, digital multimedia, and veterinarian technician training.

In the past year, Carlynton students who attended Parkway earned 72 portable industry credentials or industry-recognized qualifications which indicate they have the knowledge, skills and abilities required in jobs within specific sectors and industries. These credentials exhibit the aptitude to get them a job after high school (some start even before graduation) in a career path that could lead to considerable earnings, without the expense of college.

The price tag for college or even a two-year post-secondary education continues to rise. Students in grades 10 through 12 can receive career education by attending Parkway in the morning and returning to Carlynton just before lunch and attending academic classes in the afternoon.
