Career Academy Option for 2023-2024

Fall 2023 Registration Deadline: FRIDAY, MARCH 24

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. PLEASE NOTE: If a student fails to pass the SENCAP course and accompanying portfolio assignments with a grade of "C" or better, the student or the parent/guardian will be responsible for reimbursing Wahoo High School for the tuition costs associated with the course.

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 2023-2024 is open for all juniors and seniors who meet WHS Distance Learning and the Career Academy's SCC academic requirements. Sophomores who are 16 years of age may be allowed to enroll in SENCAP courses if approved by both WHS and SCC officials.

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.
