La Pine High School
La Pine High School is committed to not only providing rigorous academics and CTE programs, but we are also committed to providing students with opportunities to explore career pathways, identify their career goals and have experiential learning opportunities. We want our students to leave La Pine High School with job skills that will be essential in obtaining an internship, summer employment and eventually a career.
Our FUTURE READY series will provide students in all grades with the opportunity to explore careers. Freshman will use our Career Information Systems program to explore careers through Interest Profiles and Skills Assessments. Our Sophomores will attend our PURSUIT day where they will hear community members talk about finding their passion and their career journey. They will also have the opportunity to visit career tables to find out more about many career pathways. Juniors will receive future ready training in areas of resume building, interview skills and preparation to explore internship opportunities the summer before their senior year. Seniors will enjoy our "Brand You" series where they will learn about how they want to been seen by potential employers including how to use social media correctly, networking and more.
Each year we hold a Career Development week which culminates in a CAREER FAIR. This event happens on the 3rd Friday in April. Activities include RESUME WORKSHOP, COVER LETTER SKILLS, INTERVIEW SKILLS and more! Our Freshman and Sophomore students in particular benefit from this localized hiring even for summer employment. Watch the calendar and the REMIND app for more information.
The Aspire Mentor Program is under the umbrella of the Oregon Student Access and Completion office. Volunteer mentors work through the high school College & Career Centers to help students navigate decisions about life after high school. Questions can be directed to Bridgit Montgomery.
