Vocational Training/Work Study/Community Service

Beyond academic credits, CCHS students are encouraged to explore career opportunities, consistent with their Educational Development Plans. Students may attend the Calhoun Area Career Center (CACC), cosmetology or other vocational training sites for training and work experience.

Senior students may participate in work study opportunities with employers in the Battle Creek area. These must be approved in advance by our counselor. Students in work placements will have specific occupational learning goals that will be monitored and student performance will be evaluated prior to the granting of credit.

Students are encouraged to give back to the community through service. While not required, each student may be granted a maximum of 0.5 elective credits toward graduation by completing 40 hours of documented community service. Students and parents may discuss this with our counselor.
