What is Stride Career Prep?

Are you a 6th–11th grader looking to get a jump-start on your future? With Stride Career Prep, you can use your high school years to figure out where you want to go and how to get there. Exploration courses begin as early as 6th grade. In addition to core courses, you'll take career-focused electives to explore your options and find your passion—all while earning your high school diploma. Discovering what you want to do now can prepare you to dive into a career right out of high school or help you make the right decision about your college major.

Take career-focused electives in the high-demand career field of your choice:

  • Business and Finance: Everyone is looking for ways to ensure they stand out in a crowd of applicants. By exploring your business and finance options now, you can get a leg up on the competition and ensure that you stand out in a crowd of applicants.
  • Information and Communication Technologies: Whether you’re a coder, a gamer, or really into the latest tech gadgets, you can explore your passion and choose a focus. Use your talents to invent tomorrow!

*Many Microsoft®️ Office certificates can be earned after completing one course. Other certificates require more classes to be better prepared, and students who participate in the program for at least two years will have further preparation for certification testing.
