Career Readiness: Senior Project

For parents, guardians, and staff:

The Career Education and Work Standards, Chapter 4 of Title 22, are part of the State Board of Education’s regulations of required education for all students in Pennsylvania. The Career Education and Work Standards address four areas of knowledge: Career Awareness and Preparation, Career Acquisition (Getting a Job), Career Retention and Advancement, and Entrepreneurship.

For students

The purpose of the UAHS Senior Project is to help students gain an understanding of their interests, skills, passions, and values as they think about their future. Throughout their high school career, UAHS students will work to build a career portfolio that provides the tools that they will need to prepare for their future. Students will utilize the career planning and portfolio platform. Every UAHS student will graduate with a plan and be “future ready” for 21st century career success.
