Used in schools throughout California, this integrated approach helps students build a strong foundation for success in college, career and life. Pathways prepare high school students for career and a full range of postsecondary options, including two– and four–year college or university, apprenticeships, the military and formal employment training. Located at 24801 Monroe Ave., the event is open to students, parents and the public.
