Career Clusters

Each Career Cluster® represents a distinct grouping of occupations and industries based on the knowledge and skills they require. The 16 Career Clusters® and related Career Pathways provide an important organizing tool for schools and families to guide students to appropriate course work in areas they may be interested in pursuing.  This page is a work in progress and as more Programs of Study are developed for BHS, we will post them.
