Hands-on and site-base learning
JPEC values hands-on and site-based learning. We expect our falcons to participate in three forms of fieldwork over their time with us. Job Shadowing, internships, and extended site-based learning.
Transitioning from College Prep to Early College
Students transitioning from College Prep to Early College are focusing on job shadowing, spending more time on-site learning about careers aligned to their program pathway and becoming more career focused. During job shadowing students should be spending time on-site interviewing individuals in that career field and determining necessary skills to be successful.
Upper Early College
Our upper Early College students participate in internships or extended site-based learning opportunities. Through these three forms of fieldwork, students log and document their hours which go towards their 100 hour community service requirement for graduation.
