Career Readiness

Partnerships with J.F. Drake State Technical College and Calhoun Community College give students the opportunity to earn dual enrollment credit and articulated credit. Work-Based Learning also gives our students the opportunity to participate in apprenticeships, internships, and paid employment in their chosen career pathway.

Career preparedness planning is also available for middle school students and Freshman Academy students. Students who complete Career Academy programs are eligible to test and earn industry recognized credentials in their chosen career pathway. All seniors are assessed each spring using the ACT WorkKeys assessment. Career Academy opportunities offered to Huntsville City Schools’ students are constantly evolving to meet Regional workforce needs.
