What Pathway Will You Choose?


Kelso High School Career Pathways

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

At Kelso High School, the 16 national cluster pathways have been combined into 6 KSD Career Pathways, some courses are found in multiple pathways.  Students are encouraged to select their elective courses as they align to future career goals. CTE courses offer students the opportunity to develop skills through project based hands on learning. All CTE courses  focus on industry aligned technical skill strengthened with core academic standards.
