Minuteman High School held the annual Career Choice Celebration on Monday, January 30, for ninth-grade students. The ceremony marks the end of the Freshman Exploratory Process, a five-month period when ninth-grade students spend time in different career technical education (CTE) majors before selecting one to concentrate on for the remaining four years of high school.
At #MinutemanHS, there are 19 career majors for students to choose from (i.e. Automotive Technology, Health Assisting, and Multimedia Engineering.)
The 19 majors are grouped into five pathways: Trades and Transportation; Communications Media; Engineering Production; Agriculture, Environmental, and Life Sciences; and Health, Hospitality, and Human Services.
The ceremony was held in the Student Union and included a line of Peer Leaders (juniors) giving freshmen high-fives as their names were called before meeting with their new program classmates. Afterward, the students went to their new CTE learning spaces where they got to indulge in cake that was baked by students in the Culinary Arts major.
