Award Winning

The Career Choices curriculum, used in over 4,000 schools nationwide, has been remarkably successful -- in a variety of settings and with widely disparate populations -- at motivating students to stay in school and to take their education seriously.

For instance:

  • Three years after it became a required course for all freshmen at Cochella Valley High School in California, the dropout rate decreased from 12.7% to 3.8%
  • Career Choices was an integral part of the curriculum at Sussex High School, honored as one of ten All-American High Schools at a White House Ceremony.
  • In 1994, the state of Washington presented its "Restructuring Award" to a Tumwater High School for their Career Choices program.
  • The curriculum also holds a "Best Practices" citation from the U.S. Department of Labor for its summer youth programs.
  • The curriculum was awarded a promising intervention citation and plaque from the U.S. Department of Education, primarily because of its success in decreasing dropout rates and increasing math and reading scores for nontraditional students.
