Golden Strip Career Center offers students the opportunity to take courses with job-skill driven curricula. Students can study anything from child care to computers; from mechanics to woodworking; from cosmetology to culinary arts. They also have the opportunity to pursue a technical career interest while earning high school credit and dual credit (college credit). Some programs are one year and some are two years with each culminating in students earning licenses, national certification, or college credit. The courses are designed for students who are planning on pursuing a two-year associate degree, a four-year degree, or a career after graduation.
The School District of Greenville County runs buses multiple times per day for AM and PM classes as well as our New 9th Grade Career Exploratory Program for students attending Hillcrest, JL Mann, and Mauldin High Schools. Students driving their own vehicles must have special permission from the home school and GSCC administration.
Graduation Plus is a district-wide initiative from pre-K through high school to ensure all students are career and college ready. Click HERE for more information.
