Specialist High Skills Major (SHSM) programs allow students to specialize their education around their chosen field of interest.  Each SHSM program includes a bundle of 8-10 Grade 11 and 12 courses related that that area of interest.  Through Pathways, students are encouraged to take advantage of the opportunities provided in elementary and secondary school to know themselves, identify strengths, set educational and career goals, and create a Pathways Plan to achieve them.  There are five equally valued Pathways that students may choose to pursue after secondary school:  Apprenticeship; College; Community; University; and Work.
