Career Pathways Academy deadline set for Wednesday

Posted

Bevill State Community College is once again accepting applications for its Career Pathways Academy that is open to high school students.

High school sophomores in Walker, Fayette and Tuscaloosa counties, as well as Corner High School, can apply for the academy that introduces students to jobs in an industry setting.

The deadline to apply is May 20.

Scholars attend career fairs and exploration camps during the academy and participate in industry training at Bevill State. Those who participate also have the opportunity to apply for industry internships.

After completing a Career Pathways summer robotics camp, scholarship recipients go on to take two courses each semester at Bevill State during their junior year, focusing on automation and industrial maintenance. The summer before their senior year students complete job tours to observe men and women actively working in automated manufacturing.

By the time scholars graduate, they will have earned a short-term certificate in automated manufacturing and go on to complete associate's degrees before entering the workforce.

“Career Pathways Academy is an extraordinary program that offers so much to its students, from robotics camps to career exploration camps, where students have the opportunity to visit and tour industry using automated manufacturing to complete a short-term certificate in automated manufacturing - all by the time a student graduates high school,” BSCC Director of Career Tech Education Maurice Ingle said.

“Students work on state of the art technology, having access to multiple robots, learning programing and maintenance from industry certified trainers," he said. "If you are currently completing the 10th grade, live in the eligible counties, and have a minimum 3.0 GPA and enjoy robotics, start planning for an amazing career by applying for this scholarship. This is a wonderful opportunity.”
