The Career Enrichment Center is hosting its annual Digital Expo and Career Exploration from 5:45-7:15 p.m. on Thursday, April 26, at the school, 807 Mountain Road NE.

Career Exploration participants include Central New Mexico Community College, the University of New Mexico, the Institute of American Indian Arts, NM Workforce Solutions, Embassy Suites, the CNM Nursing Department, the Engineering Department from UNM, the Sheet Metal Workers Apprenticeship Program, the NM Job Mentorship Program and more. They will be on campus to share information with students and parents regarding dual-credit programs, internships, mentorships and other job opportunities for the summer and next school year.

All dual-credit classes offered through Career Enrichment Center follow a career or educational pathway and are free to public education students. In the upcoming 2018-2019 school year, CEC will offer more than 50 dual credit opportunities for students. In addition, they provide free transportation to and from the student’s comprehensive home high schools for all three CEC sessions.

Also featured on Thursday evening will be the CEC Digital Expo, a media arts showcase of student projects, including video games, apps for tablets, robots, short films and music.

In addition, Valley High School will be at the event to talk about and register incoming 9th graders for their new STEM program. Beginning in the fall of 2018, Valley High School will be the home of a new APS magnet school designed for students who are interested in engineering and computer science.  This will be a school within a school and will be open to incoming freshmen (current 8th-grade students). Valley’s new Engineering the Future program will cultivate engineering habits of mind such as problem-solving, creativity, optimism, persistence and collaboration.  Students will explore and apply the design process in all core classes. The academic emphasis will be on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM).

The STEM program at Valley High School and the invaluable college and career readiness programs at the Career Enrichment Center are all open to any APS students who are interested.
