We Support Career and College Readiness
Preparing students for all post-secondary options; whether training, a degree education or the workforce, is important to individual success and a healthy economy. Education is adjusting its focus from a degree as the only form of success by bringing together stakeholders from school districts, business and government to expand pathways to student success for every student.
NuPaths provides an option for school districts to offer students IT certification courses during high school to help students prepare for a transition into a career. At the same time, NuPaths’ courses include college credit that gives students a head start on completing a college degree.
