What is a Career Cluster?

  • Career Clusters provide the essential knowledge and skills for the 16 Career Clusters and their Career Pathways. It also functions as a useful guide in developing programs of study bridging secondary and postsecondary curriculum and for creating individual student plans of study for a complete range of career options.

    Career Clusters help students discover their interests and their passions and empowers them to choose the educational pathway that can lead to success in high school, college and career. 

    Career Clusters provide students with a context for studying traditional academics and learning the skills specific to a career.
