College and Career Pathways


What Are Pathways?

Pathways are programs of academic and technical study centered on a California industry sector that offer real-world learning for real-world success. High school students pursue a pathway over multiple years and graduate prepared for the full range of post-graduation options - which can include two or four-year college, certification programs, apprenticeships or formal job training. By offering multiple pathways, schools encourage students to select from a variety of themed programs in one of California’s 15 major industry sectors, including finance and business; health science and medical technology; information technology; engineering; and arts, media, and entertainment.

Curriculum

Each pathway offers an academic core curriculum that meets state requirements for college admission, integrated technical courses that meet Career Technical Education standards, work-based learning opportunities, and support services to help students become proficient in advanced academic and technical skills.

The College and Career Pathways Program is administered by the Department of College & Careers Pathways (Linked Learning).
