This summer the Career Education Department at Laney College (Oakland) will once again be offering a number of programs for interested high school students in the Bay Area.

The programs are 6 weeks long and are focused on informing students about different career pathways through hands-on activities. We have “priority” programs for high school students, as well as regularly-scheduled introductory classes that, while open to all, are good entry-level classes for high school students. For the HS Priority programs, others may apply and if space is available, may be admitted. Come visit us at the CTE Expo Month starting in April 20th to learn more about our programs.

For questions, please contact us at laney-cte@peralta.edu
