Benefits of becoming a program completer:

  • Preparation for a university, junior college, or trade school program – including earning college credits
  • A well rounded educational focus in a career area and attainment of graduation required CRLE credits
  • Development of real world skills and opportunities for experiential/hands-on learning

Graphic Design

 

Graphic Design Program of Study

 

Graphic Design 1A/B

Students will be exposed to the industry standard technologies and principles that compose basic principles of design work. These elements will include principles of design and composition, basic layout structure, basic color theory, digital photography, industrial design through 3d rendering, logo design, Adobe Photoshop and poster design. All projects involve creative problem solving, aesthetics and criticism. Graphic Design is a very universal set of skills that will translate to many career options in commercial art and design.

 

Graphic Design 2A/B

Students will reinforce the work that was started in Graphic Design 1, and to focus on design and lettering more in depth. These elements will include typography, brand identity, Swiss grid systems, advanced and experimental layouts, color photography, advanced Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, advanced 3D rendering and advanced industrial design.

 

Advanced Graphic Design 1/2

The advanced capstone course will include an entrepreneurial aspect of being an independent designer. Students will be asked to perform design services throughout the school and community. Projects include billboard design, magazine illustration, T-shirt design and printing, website design, brand identity for local businesses, creation of promotional materials, creating signage, use of the laser cutters, CNC, and 3D printers for design projects and work experience/ internships in the community.

 

Work Experience/ Internship 

Students will engage in a graphic design field with an internship/work experience.

 

 

Natural Resources Program of Study - Fish Hatchery

Fisheries Ecology 1A/B
Fisheries Ecology is a course designed around the life cycle of a salmon. There are two parts to the class. The first part looks at wildlife conservation, streams as salmonid ecosystems, lakes as salmonid ecosystems and the ocean as salmonid ecosystems. The course emphasizes a hands-on approach by working with actual Chinook, Coho, and Steelhead in an on campus hatchery. Students are responsible for daily care of the fish as well as any class work that is assigned. The class is involved in real world research and students participate with scientists as they prepare and gather data.
 
Fisheries Ecology 2A/B
Fisheries Ecology is a course designed around the life cycle of a salmon. There are two parts to the class. The first part looks at ecosystems and habitats, intraspecific and interspecific relationships, introducing the fish and salmon life cycles. The course emphasizes a hands-on approach by working with actual Chinook, Coho, and Steelhead in an on campus hatchery. Students are responsible for daily care of the fish as well as any class work that is assigned. The class is involved in real world research and students participate with scientists as they prepare and gather data.
 
Fish Hatchery Management A/B
Fisheries Ecology Management class is designed to put students in the leadership roll in the running a Fish Hatchery. Students are taught in Fisheries Ecology 1 and 2 how to run a fish hatchery and the idea behind the Leadership class is to give the student the chance to put that training into practice. Students are in charge of collecting data on fish, water quality and feeding. They are also in charge of maintenance and upkeep of all facilities. The class puts the students in a real environment where they learn all aspects of running a fish hatchery.
 
STEM 1 A/B
The STEM 1 course is designed to approach problems and issues as we would in our work and in our lives in general. The four subject areas will be applied as needed to gather information and data and used to draw conclusions and, hopefully, find answers to complex problems and issues. Students will have an opportunity to work with 3D Printers, CNC Routers, Vinyl Cutters, and Laser Cutters to create both physical and virtual manipulatives while studying pre-engineering, engineering, and advanced manufacturing topics. The focus of the class will be project-based inquiry learning which develops a student’s ability to adapt to modern day work force skills.
 
STEM 2: Intro to Manufacturing A/B
This class introduces students to the various methods used to process and transform materials, including using CAD skills to create products for the advanced manufacturing class to produce. Students will learn how to use a CNC router, Laser engraver, Vinyl Graphics cutter, and 3D printers.
 
Work Experience/Internship/Individual Special Project A/B
Students will engage in a natural resources field with an internship/work experience.
 
Zoology 1A/B
This is an advanced biological science that prepares students who are college bound for studies in life sciences. Zoology takes a systematic look at the animal kingdom, by using examples of actual fauna from all the different phylum. Labs are especially important and the techniques highly stressed. Dissection of animals is part of the hands on experience, as well as dealing with living representatives whenever possible. (Must have completed Biology to enroll in this class).

Health Services Program of Study

 
Healthcare I A
This course is offered to junior & senior students interested in pursuing a future in a health-related field. This course provides students with information on different career options, issues affecting healthcare (including ethics/confidentiality/safety/wellness), job shadowing experiences, and community wellness promotion. Students are recommended to have completed or be taking anatomy & physiology concurrently.
 
Healthcare I B
This course is offered to junior & senior students interested in pursuing a future in a health-related field. This course provides students with information on different career options, issues affecting healthcare (including ethics/confidentiality/safety/wellness), job shadowing experiences, and community wellness promotion. Students are recommended to have completed or be taking anatomy & physiology concurrently.
 
Healthcare II
This class is available to seniors who have completed Health Occupations I and have the recommendation of the instructor. This course includes the opportunity to participate in enhanced job shadowing opportunities, college level curriculum and individual program development.
