Career Pathways at MVHS

Career Pathways at MVHS

Students interested in moving quickly to the workforce can also take early college courses at MVHS to achieve this goal.  Most good-paying jobs require some college or formal training beyond high school. Mt. Vernon High School has organized its Career and Technical Education (CTE) courses in a logical way so that students can earn dual credits in their CTE pathway that directly aligns with the Ivy Tech Community College Technical Certificate associated with each Career & Technical Education pathway.


MVHS Pathways to Credential

Our aim in counseling students for college and career readiness is to show a clear path to the college and career training opportunities beyond high school that align with the students interests and career goals. Our Early College/Career Program allows students to move down their pathway faster if they choose and earn credit for college courses in their chosen pathway prior to graduation. This will save students money and time. Below is a list of MVHS Pathways and the corresponding Ivy Tech credential (31 hrs) or Associate's Degree (60hrs). Hyperlinks are available on the credential/degree that will take the student directly to the Ivy Tech or Vincennes University website for more information.


The following chart lists all MVHS “Early Career” Pathways alongside the college credential or associate's program. The cells in the “College Credentials and Degrees” column are hyperlinked, so when you click on the hyperlink it takes you to the website of the college/university credential or associate's degree and shows you how the classes you take at MVHS fit into the courses at Ivy Tech or Vincennes University.

“Preparing for College and Careers” and “Adult Roles & Responsibilities” are foundational Career and Technical Education courses recommended for every student in every Pathway.
