- District 214 is committed to helping students develop skill in life and career planning. Accordingly, the district offers students a variety of opportunities to learn about and explore careers. Life and career planning is an ongoing process, it is difficult to tell when it begins and there appears to be no end to the process. Some students, however, make significant career related decisions while in high school. Such students are ready, willing, and able to participate in specialized career preparation programs at the possible exclusion of other courses, programs, and activities. If you are at this point in your life and career planning and are pursuing a career in education, or medicine, you should consider enrolling in one of the following career academies. An academy is an extended mix of classroom learning and on-the-job experience.
Internships - Township High School District 214 offers students an opportunity to apply for and participate in a variety of school and district internship programs. These programs are for students who have reached a point in their life and career planning where they are ready, willing and able to explore a career in greater detail.
Project Lead the Way - Project Lead the Way (PLTW) is a sequential engineering program that can potentially lead to 15 college credits transferable to 4-year schools like Purdue, Bradley, Milwaukee School of Engineering and U of I, along with numerous two-year institutions. This program consists of an eight-semester program sequence covering the foundations of engineering with hands-on practical applications of real engineering concepts. Its mission is to assure the success of an increasing and more diverse group of students in engineering and the engineering technology field of study - fields experiencing critical shortages.
