Career Pathways is a partnership between college and high school instructors designed
to guide local students into high-skill, high-wage careers with local industries.
High school students can earn college credit for high school classes, without leaving
high school or doing additional homework!
Dual credit is applied for career and technical education (CTE) courses, which then
transfer to college programs. Once you finish high school you can apply your Career
Pathways credits to one of Lower Columbia College's professional-technical programs.
Career Pathways courses earned through Lower Columbia College will transfer to any
Washington State two-year institution or college, and some four-year colleges.
Reasons to participate:
- Save time and money
