Students who will be juniors attend a two week summer school program at Carl Sandburg College. The topic for the session is career exploration. Students experience field trips, guest speakers and career assessments to help them explore a variety of careers and to guide them in choosing a major in college that will lead them to their chosen career.
In the summer of 2013, twelve students participated in a very busy two weeks at Carl Sandburg College. We visited WEEK-TV in East Peoria, IL, the Knox County State's Attorney's Office in Galesburg, IL and the St. Francis Jump Trading Education & Simulation Center in Peoria, IL. We also hosted two guest speakers: CSC Director of Public Safety Kip Canfield and Assistant Coordinator of Public Safety at CSC, Anthony Law. Students also completed Career Cruising Assessments and presented their findings on three careers of interest.
