What We Do
In the Exploratory Tech class, students learn foundational skills and introductions to career pathways to prepare them to be successful in a Career Center Program in their junior and/or senior years.
Exploratory Technology students balance their time between practicing their academic skills and shadowing in all CVCC programs, giving students a chance to explore career pathways and opportunities provided by Career and Technical education.
The Exploratory Technology Program follows a curriculum that emphasizes the development of critical thinking, reasoning, and problem solving skills. Students learn applied academic and technical skills designed to prepare them for success in any technical program at CVCC.
* All Exploratory Technology students will be required
to safely operate hand and power tools as they
complete technical projects. *
Successful students in this program have these academic opportunities available to them.
- A full academic education experience
