Penta Career Center’s Career Night attendance is nearly back to where it was three years ago. Superintendent Ed Ewers said there were 700-800 students on campus during Career Night, held Dec. 6.
The event introduces high school freshmen, sophomores and juniors, middle school students and parents to the variety of career-technical training options available at Penta. Ewers said 45 students enrolled that evening.
Penta offers 27 career-technical training programs for high school students during their junior and senior years of high school at the school’s main campus. In addition, Penta offers a year-long Sophomore Exploratory program for students who are interested in exploring career-technical fields during 10th grade.
High school Principal Ryan Lee said he has met with elementary and middle school principals from Penta’s member schools to talk about career awareness and exploration.
