As pupils register for courses for the 2024-25 school year, District 88 would like to remind students and parents/guardians about the various pathway opportunities available.

We are focused on meeting the needs of all of our students and providing multiple and flexible pathways for them to find success after they graduate from District 88.

We are proud to offer a comprehensive curriculum, including more than 30 Advanced Placement (AP) courses and more than 50 Dual-Credit/Collegiate-Credit courses in 17 career pathway areas, along with award-winning fine arts programming. Last year, our students earned more than 3,000 college credits and more than 1,000 career certifications, and our families saved more than $1 million in college tuition. Our students also continued to earn state and national recognitions in academics, extracurricular activities, fine arts and athletics. 

We continue to work with colleges, universities and local businesses to enhance these options, and those collaborations and pathways are critical to assist with the labor shortage and to connect students to hands-on, immersive experiences, as well as certifications, credentials and scholarships. The focus is to connect them with viable short-term and long-term career options and work-based learning that can provide a supported pathway through their college pursuits.

  • Our students have access to college-level and dual-credit classes, as well as externally credentialed and dual-credit career pathways, in areas such as automotive technology, culinary arts, business careers, engineering, medical careers, teacher preparation, building trades and more. These courses allow students to potentially earn college credit while in high school, saving them an average of $1 million annually. 

  • Our students also earn more than 1,000 career certifications each year in the areas of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources; Human and Public Services; Manufacturing, Engineering, Technology and Trades; Finance and Business Services; and Health Sciences and Technology.

  • We encourage students to explore and take advantage of the apprenticeships, internships and vocational trainings offered in the district, including the CTE Youth Apprenticeship Program, CNC Machining Fundamentals, Education Teacher Preparation Program and Heritage Spanish Career Fluency.

  • Course selection is a vital part of a student’s high school career, and parental involvement is essential to assist students in making successful academic choices. Families are encouraged to research the district’s Course Listing Guide via SchooLinks (at https://www.dupage88.net/site/page/19), a comprehensive college-and-career planning and tracking tool.
