Thornton Academy Career Center’s goal is to prepare students to be the workforce of the future. The Career Center staff counsels students on best practices for job searching, resume writing, and interviewing.They also assist students in exploring careers by exposing them to workplaces that are a match with their skills and interests. These learning opportunities include job shadows, mentoring programs, and other community partnerships. The Career Center provides support for teachers in the classroom by bringing in presenters who teach students the connection between classroom learning and real world application.
I love Thornton Academy, because there are so many opportunities for you to explore the career you wish to do in the future. I wanted to see what a career in nursing or another healthcare profession would be like, and I have gotten lots of experience in the career I wish to pursue.
