Career Clusters are groups of potential occupations that share common skills, knowledge and interests. Career Pathways are "roads" students can take in high school to help them prepare for those careers. The pathways wheel below presents a number of different career clusters, along with demand, average salaries and job options within that cluster. At the bottom of each career cluster page, students can find the elective courses at KHS that can help move them toward their career goals.
