Career Development at Berea High School

The Education and Economic Development Act (EEDA) gives students in South Carolina a guided pathway for exploring careers by using resources within the classroom and the community.

 

Each student begins exploring their individual career path as soon as they begin school. Eighth and ninth grade students start to define their interests and choose a career cluster with their parents and school counselor during their Individual Graduation Plan (IGP) meeting. Using the “Personal Pathways to Success” program, students, parents and the counselor create an IGP. Students in the tenth – twelfth grades narrow their focus by choosing a career major during their IGP meeting. During the meeting, students, counselors, and parents also discuss which classes they should take to further explore their career interest. Students can change their major anytime with their counselor.



**If you are interested in speaking to a class at Berea High School about your career, we would love to hear from you! Please contact Berea High Schools Guidance Department at 864-355-1604.


There are 16 Career Clusters. For more information about a specific career cluster, please visit www.scpathways.org
