Career Pathways

Career pathways are state-approved career enhancement programs defined as a coherent, articulated sequence of
rigorous academic and career related courses usually commencing in the ninth grade and leading to an associate
degree, an industry-recognized certificate or licensure, and/or a baccalaureate degree and beyond.

Career, Technical and Agricultural Education (CTAE) provides all Georgia students with the opportunity to select at
least three sequenced electives in a career pathway, along with recommended academic course work, to prepare
them to continue their education at any level or to enter the world of work.

Selection of a pathway will be based on self-awareness and the investigation of occupations plus related educational
levels aligned with the pathway. Most high-demand, high-skilled, high-wage occupations in all concentrations still
do require education beyond high school. Implementation of career pathways is a collaborative effort between the
local system, the Technical College System of Georgia and the University System of Georgia.

because each job placement is directly related to the curriculum of
the classes completed or in which the student is currently enrolled.
Work-Based Learning is not simply work release, but an extension of
the high school classroom learning in a non-traditional laboratory
setting. It is an opportunity to truly apply, in real world settings, what
the student has learned through a related program of study.

There are several opportunities for students to participate in Work-

Based Learning. These opportunities include Cooperative Education,
Internship, Youth Apprenticeship, and Clinical Experiences.

Dual Enrollment
What is Dual Enrollment?
Dual enrollment (DE) programs allow high school students to earn both high school and college credit for the same
course. Students may enroll in college courses full-time or part-time, and may take courses during or after regular school
hours on the college campus,online, or at the high school. These programs are designed to provide challenging
opportunities while allowing students to get an early start on college and ease the transition.

How does Dual Enrollment Work?

In order to participate in Dual Enrollment, students must apply and be accepted to a participating eligible post-secondary
institution. Students who attend DE courses through USG and TCSG will not pay any tuition or mandatory fees, and books
will be provided. Course-related fees, such as lab fees or supplies, will be the responsibility of the student. Courses taken
through DE will not impact HOPE Eligibility or the amount of HOPE money a student receives. Students enrolled in at least
12 semester hours or 15 quarter hours are considered full time DE students. Satisfactory academic progress is required to
continue participation in DE.

Who is eligible to participate?

DE students must be enrolled in an eligible high school. Georgia defines eligible high schools to include:  Georgia public
