CAREER AND INNOVATION STUDIES
At Dr. Anne Anderson High School, we are committed to the success of our students. Our Career and Innovation Studies Program goes beyond learning skills in isolation and focuses on immersing students in the lifestyle of a skilled technician. Students add to their portfolio of learning with access to rigorous programming, advanced technology, expert teachers and support staff, and instruction based on critical thinking and problem solving. In leveraging our state of the art facilities as part of their learning, Dr. Anne Anderson students are future ready.
FUTURE FOCUSED LEARNING
At times, and in certain courses, our students will have opportunities to earn micro-credentials. Micro-credentials recognize competencies, knowledge and skills acquired through specialized learning experiences and help students document learning for resume development, post-secondary applications or recognition, and entrance into the world of work. Students will be able to earn some micro-credentials that allow for the addition of tangible qualifications to their resumes as a way of demonstrating work and/or career readiness
CAREER PATHWAYS PLANNING
In addition to our talented faculty, our school also has a variety of support and exempt staff members who work directly with students to unlock their full potential. Our in-house athletic trainer, graphic designer and science lab technician all play key roles in developing our students' understanding of not only the knowledge it takes to enter the workforce, but the values and attitudes that are required to support a meaningful career.
