Career Pathways Program (formerly known as Tech Prep) awards high school students dual credit for career and technical education (CTE) courses articulated to college programs. If you are a high school student, you can earn college credit for classes you take in high school, without having to leave high school or do additional homework!
Once you finish high school, you can apply your earned Career Pathways credits to one of Lower Columbia College's professional-technical programs*.
