Virtual Schools of Excellence, myVSOE.com, is pleased to announce a partnership with Brighton College, offering dual enrollment college credits for Career and Technical Education. These courses leading to Associate Degrees and Industry Certifications will be available to students participating in all Virtual Schools of Excellence partner programs.
“Our students will advance their knowledge in a career field of their choice, gain the skills and knowledge to jump into a career while still in high school or right after graduation, all while experiencing the demands of a real-world career! The data indicates that students who engage in authentic career preparation from an early age, are more likely to continue in their studies to earn credentials, have higher graduation rates, and have potential to earn more than graduates with other degrees,” said Trina Angelone, CEO/Founder, Virtual Schools of Excellence.
“CTE addresses the needs of high-growth industries and helps close the skills gap. We are proud to be able to bring this industry preparatory program to the VSOE students,” said Sam Fernandez, Executive Vice-President, Brighton College.
Brighton College is nationally accredited by the Distance Education Accrediting Commission and delivers top quality online certificate, diploma, and associate degree programs to students at an affordable price.
High school students involved in the Career and Technical Education are more engaged, perform better, and graduate at higher rates. A recent study by the Association for Career and Technical Education found that 81% of dropouts say that relevant, real-world learning opportunities would have kept them in high school.
Programs available include career paths ranging from Allied Health, Pharmacy Technician, Business Accounting, CompTIA, and Customer Service Representative to Construction Services, Child Development Assistance, and Paralegal Studies. A full course catalogue is available.
