Students will gain practical knowledge in a career, enhance their leadership skills, build relationships with working professionals, and have the chance to meet students from a variety of high schools in the area. For more information, please visit the Exploring Program Web site at

Sign-up and Open Houses for the various programs will begin in August and September. Contact school counselor Kalena Falk for more information.
