Once a student begins to develop an area of interest, staff may want to begin helping them to think creatively about whether this interest has potential for a future career. Students may explore their interests by taking courses offered through one of SCS CTE programs, by developing their own course by using the Experienced Based Education (EBE) courses, or taking courses through CTE (formerly ROP) and community college classes.
CTE at Springs Charter
Springs Charter offers CTE Pathway Programs. These programs are offered at academy sites and are designed to prepare students for either immediate employment in an industry following high school graduation or for continued education at a college or university. Courses are offered at Flabob Airport Preparatory Academy, Temecula Student Center, Murrieta, Magnolia, Hemet and Palm Street Academy. Contact your E.S./T.O.R. to find out about course availability in your area and how you can get signed up.
CTE Courses (formerly ROP)
Career Technology Education courses provide entry-level job skills and experience in a large variety of career interest areas. High school students 16 years or over may want to begin their vocational training and experience while still in high school. Most CTE courses provide students with certificates of competency upon completion. An online Google search will quickly lead to a CTE program in your area.

* Please note: Any CTE or ROP program that is offered outside of Springs must be pre-approved by the student’s guidance counselor. Program descriptions and proof of enrollment must be submitted to the counselor prior to beginning CTE courses, and a meeting will be held to determine course credit. Upon completion of the course or course sequence, students must provide SCS with a certificate of completion.
Certificate & Associate of Arts Programs @ Community College
Similar to CTE, students may choose to begin instruction towards a Certificate Program or an Associate of Arts Degree (AA) at the community colleges. Certificate Programs consist of 6-8 classes in specific areas and are designed to be used for entry level job skills or can be applied to the Associate of Arts Degree offered through the community college system. Check your local community college course catalog for specific programs in your area.
