U Prep Schools Career Pathway Programs provide scholars an engaged and unique learning opportunity, taking them outside of the traditional classroom where they experience hands-on and project-based learning to prepare them for college and career. Within U Prep’s Career Pathways scholars are immersed in exploring unique career fields that are in high demand, and lack gender and racial diversity. A selected number of students are chosen for our pathways, and an accompanying partner – either a learning institution or an industry partner supports the area of study. Upon completion of requirements students leave with employable skills to enter into the workforce.
