Career Academy Option for 2021-2022
Fall 2021 Registration Deadline: FRIDAY, APRIL 2
NOTE: If you have any questions or would like to enroll in the Career Academy program, please contact Wahoo High School Counselor John Harris (443-4332 ext. 3229).
Career Academy is a partnership program with Southeast Community College and high schools in the same area. The Southeast Nebraska Career Academy Partnership (SENCAP) program provides students with more opportunities to learn about careers and to earn college credit while still in high school.
Opportunities provided by SENCAP include: reimbursed college tuition; career training; networking with students from other schools; job shadowing opportunities; exciting field trips; many "hands on" experiences and much more.
The classes are college level course work and are for college credit. Students complete a portfolio which also allows them to receive high school credit, hence this is a DUAL credit option since credit is offered for both college and high school credit.
SENCAP pays half the tuition and Wahoo High School will pay for the other half. PLEASE NOTE: If a student fails to pass the high school and college portions of a course with a grade of "C" or better, parent/guardians will be responsible for reimbursing both SCC and Wahoo High School for all tuition paid.
Students are also responsible for the cost of their books and all fees, which are not reimbursed under any circumstances by Wahoo High School.
The Career Academy Program for 2020-2021 is open for all juniors and seniors who meet WHS Distance Learning and the Career Academy's SCC academic requirements.
FINANCIAL AID IS AVAILABLE FOR THESE COURSES. Nebraska's Coordinating Commission for Post-Secondary Education offers Access College Early (ACE) Scholarships, which pays tuition and mandatory fees for qualified, low-income high school students to enroll in college courses from Nebraska's colleges or universities. For more information about financial aid, contact WHS Counselor John Harris or WHS Principal Vernon Golladay. Students who obtain a scholarship for these courses are expected to complete the courses with a grade of 'C' or better. Students with scholarships who achieve a grade lower than 'C' will be required to reimburse the original scholarship amount to the district.
PLEASE NOTE: Any student registering for a dual/SENCAP course, then transferring out of the Wahoo Public Schools District will be immediately billed full tuition for any dual/SENCAP course(s) in which the student is enrolled. Full payment must be made prior to check out from Wahoo Public Schools. Students will have a W/F (Withdrawal/Fail) on college and WHS transcripts.
