The tour will be on March 9th.  The purpose of this tour is to continue our mission of offering students diverse elective offerings that are career-based; this tour helps future high school students choose meaningful elective courses that are in alignment with offerings at the Career Preparation Center for students’ junior and senior years of high school. We will have more information to come in subsequent newsletters.
