What is WBL Career Pathways Program?
White Bear Lake Area High School students enrolled in Career Pathway courses learn industry-specific skills and, in some courses may earn free college credit and industry-recognized credentials. Students are involved in engaging, hands-on classroom and field experiences, such as internships, job shadows, connecting with local industry professionals, touring local business, and other experiential learning opportunities. Career Pathways participants develop essential skills and experience needed to either enter the workforce directly with a high-paying career or further their education.
Why Career Pathways?
The WBL Career Pathways program lays the foundation for students to excel in life beyond graduation, whether through continued education or a meaningful career.
