• What are Career Clusters?

    Career cluster is a group of jobs and industries that are related by skills or products. Within each cluster, there are cluster “pathways” that correspond to a collection of courses and training opportunities to prepare you for a given career. Career Clusters provide students with a context for studying traditional academics and learning the skills specific to a career. Career Clusters provide U.S. schools with a structure for organizing or restructuring curriculum offerings and focusing class make-up by a common theme such as interest.

     

    How are Career Clusters being rolled out at Fitch?

    Students will choose a Career Cluster in their FAS class. They will be awarded a pin to wear at graduation and a certificate of completion for those students who successfully complete their Career Cluster pathway. To successfully complete their Career Cluster Students must pass a minimum of 6 classes in their cluster. Students will be allowed to change their pathways throughout their four years, however full career cluster credit will not be awarded unless a minimum of 6 classes have been successfully completed.
