In an effort to bridge the gap between school and career preparation, the St. Marys Area High School continues to offer a unique opportunity as part of its Technical Preparation Career Center, which allows students to utilize cooperative education through the Co-op School-to-Career program.
Recently, both students and participating employers were recognized for their efforts during the school’s annual Co-Op School-To-Work awards ceremony.
During the program, students work between 15 and 28 hours per week at local businesses, well over the 15 hours per week required by the state Department of Education for this type of accredited program.
