Work-Based Learning is a collaborative effort by the school, parent/guardian, business and industry, for the training of apprentices and student learners.
Through the Capstone program, senior students who meet the entry-level requirements of the trade/technical area, and have demonstrated good work ethics, are recommended for this unique plan of education, which is designed to integrate classroom learning with supervised work experience. One objective of Capstone Work-Based Learning is to place the student in a position which may lead to permanent employment upon graduation.
