Career Study Program

PAHS Career Study Program is an optional program for senior students in good academic standing. The program provides an opportunity for students to explore a potential career area and enjoy a work place experience. Students leave school the last three weeks before graduation to participate in a program of observation or hands-on experience guided by a community sponsor. No credit or grade is earned.
