School to Careers

The question of how students become successful in college or a career following high school is a big one today. Jackson Hole High School’s college and career programming is designed to give all students a head start on their postsecondary plan - whether the plan involves finding a passion and exploring majors and colleges, or building skills and gaining education to immediately begin a satisfying career. Ultimately, the program is intended to help students develop the skills and explore areas of interest they will need to be successful beyond JHHS. The School to Careers program provides students who have paid jobs and/or unpaid internships the opportunity to explore the world of work, develop skills that can be transferred to other areas of their life, and earn high school credit.
