What is a Career Cluster?

A Career Cluster is a group of jobs and industries that are related by skills or products. Within each Career Cluster there are a collection of courses and training opportunities that prepare students for several career opportunities. For example: If my chosen Career Cluster is Health Science my potential career options may include: doctor, nurse, veterinarian, dentist, lab technician, physical therapist, athletic trainer & more.


There are 16 total nationally recognized Career Clusters (sometimes referred to as a pathway) established at the national level that are recognizable across the United States in middle schools, high schools, community and technical colleges, and the workforce.
