PIKES PEAK COMMUNITY COLLEGE
Career Start at Pikes Peak Community College provides occupational skill development and training for junior and senior high school students from all over the Pikes Peak region. School districts pay the cost of the program through a contractual agreement with Pikes Peak Community College. Students attending Career Start earn credit, which can be applied toward high school graduation. Under certain circumstances, and at the instructors' discretion, college credit can also be earned which may be applied to a post-secondary certificate or degree. In addition to teaching occupational and technical skills, Career Start strives to prepare students for the world of work by teaching the related academics and workplace basics that are essential for employment.
Classes follow a typical 5-days-per-week schedule and run two hours and forty five minutes daily. Students may enroll in either a morning or an afternoon session (limited programs). Many programs offer a second year program. College credit earned during enrollment in the Career Start relates directly to the post-secondary sequence of courses.
Instruction is provided in classrooms, laboratories, and in business and industry. In most programs, only Career Start students are enrolled; in others, they learn side-by-side with college students. All instructors in the Career Start are occupationally experienced and vocationally credentialed.
