    School – to – Career Initiative
     
    The Apex Business Alliance is a collaborative partnership of business, community and school leaders committed to educating each student to be a responsible and productive citizens. This partnership prepares every student to make knowledgeable career choices through the support of academic rigor and work-based learning experiences in a systematic, comprehensive, community-wide effort. Members who commit to our Alliance, attend meetings and provide ongoing support of the strategies identified by the WCPSS Strategic Plan. 
     
    We are continuously looking for new business partnerships. Business partners can provide the following opportunities:
    • Guest speakers
    • Career fair participants
    • Student mentors
      School-to-Career
    • Host a field trip
    • Assist with leadership development skills
    • Assist students in developing presentation skills, soft skills & business etiquette

    At the middle school level, students are involved in introductory career fairs and activities that expose them to the variety of career clusters. They may also take field trips to local businesses and learn from guest speakers who visit classrooms.

     
    The immediate result of this partnership is to help prepare every student to make responsible, productive career choices, by assisting with school-based and work-based activities. The end result is preparing students for a career of their choice, ultimately benefiting the employers within the Apex community.
