The Specialist High Skills Majors (SHSM) program offers students the opportunity to explore a specific community, or economic and/or industrial sector in preparation for post-secondary destinations in one of four pathways: Apprenticeship, College, University or Workplace.

SHSM includes specified, bundled credits, sector-recognized certifications, ‘Reach Ahead’ activities and participation in a sector-partnered contextualized experience, where students work with real community organizations to solve an authentic problem their organization may face.
