EXCEL 11: High Growth Industry Exploration

Jeffery learns about the Maritime Program at AVTEC.
Students in the 11th grade spend 10 days test-driving Alaska’s high-demand industries such as construction, mining, oil & gas, healthcare, transportation, and hospitality & tourism through job shadows and tours. Participants continue updating their Personal Learning and Career Plan (PLCP), as well as research and visit post-secondary institutions in order to further their education and/or training after high school. Students successfully completing an EXCEL 11 session can earn .5 high school credit.
