VYPE Goose Creek August 2022

GrowingGiantCareerOpportunities! BY: KENDALL DAVID, DIRECTOR OF COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT & MARKETING Goose Creek CISD has committed to giving

students diverse opportunities and rich experiences to prepare for life after high school. As a result, we are confident that our district provides one of the nation’s most hands-on, opportunistic, career and technical systems. Currently, we have 10 career academies where students are engaged through a rigorous curriculum, inspired through industry

partnerships, and empowered through real-world experiences, to succeed in post secondary education and the global workforce. In addition, three of our academies (STEM, Global Business, and Health Science) have achieved national model status from the National Career Academy Coalition; the highest rating granted to campuses. The NCAC creates the instructional framework and sets national standards of practice for career academies across the country. This year, districts from all over the country will participate in onsite visits at our model academies. Not only do our academies benefit students, but they act as a service to the community. Did you know that our students run a pet spa? You can take your pet to the Stuart Career Spa 4 Paws for grooming. Stuart Career also offers an auto repair storefront and is opening Titan Table, a fully operational restaurant and coffee shop, in the fall for public use. Currently, SCTHS is working to open a computer repair shop for basic technology repair. In addition, the Global Business Academy has an onsite Beacon Federal Credit Union branch open to its students and staff. Goose Creek CISD students in the eighth grade can begin to apply for academies in the fall. Please review our High School Options brochure to learn more about opportunities for our Giants.
