School to Work Programs

Programs, usually within the formal education system, that bring educators, students, business and industry together to prepare students to obtain first jobs in high-skill, high-wage careers. School-to-work programs integrate academic and occupational learning and utilize the workplace, in addition to the classroom, as an active learning environment by making employers joint partners with educators in providing opportunities for all students to participate in high-quality, work-based learning experiences.

Vocational Centers

Programs, often operated by community adult schools or other secondary or postsecondary educational entities, that offer specialized education and training related to any of a variety of occupational areas for adults who may have high school diplomas and for selected high school students or high-school-age youngsters who have the permission of a school counselor.

Vocational/Trade High Schools

Separately organized high schools whose course of instruction focuses on preparing students for a particular trade or occupation. The program, though structured and formal, operates outside the aegis of a regular, full-curriculum secondary school.
