Stride Career Prep
Middle School Explorations
Which courses are offered?
As part of our Stride Career Prep program, middle school students complete a two-course career exploration series to get a broad overview of possible careers. These courses are designed to help students explore their interests and match their strengths to jobs in high-demand fields. Students are then able to choose a Stride Career Prep pathway for further study in high school.
Middle School Explorations I
Students explore careers in over 15 different fields—from energy to human resources and law to transportation—and begin practicing their leadership skills. They discover what careers are available and what they need to do to prepare for them. In addition, they examine how to choose the career that's best for them based on their personality and interests.
Middle School Explorations II
With all the careers available, it can be difficult to narrow them down. In this course, students explore even more career options, what it takes to prepare for them, and the pros and cons of different career choices. They'll also try out parts of different careers to see if they're a good fit.
