The School-to-Career office is designed to help students with career pathway exploration, work and volunteer experiences, cadet teaching, internships, job shadows, business writing assistance and a variety of industry programs.

We offer the opportunity to get elective credits for paid work, volunteer work, and internships. Our partnerships include a dental program sponsored by the Central Oregon Dental Society, engineering rotations sponsored by the Central Oregon Chapter of Professional Engineers of Oregon (PEO), a health occupations rotation program sponsored by St. Charles Medical Center, The Center and Bend Memorial Clinic and Bend Surgery Center, as well as with many other members of the Central Oregon community. Click here to see a full list of our program offerings.

Come visit the Future Center located in Room C112. Here, students can work one-on-one with parent volunteers to map out a plan for post-high school education and careers. The center is an excellent resource to find information about 2 and 4-year colleges, military opportunities, gap-year programs, apprenticeships, professional technical programs, scholarships and financial aid.
