    Career and Technical Education

      
    Strath Haven students have the opportunity to spend half of each school day studying a particular area of interest at the Delaware County Technical High Schools (DCTS). There are multiple programs in five areas of study:
    • Health and Biosciences
    • Engineering and Computer Science
    • Logistics, Distribution and Transportation
    • Hospitality, Tourism and Human Services
    • Construction Technology
    You can view the virtual open house sessions for each area of study at any time.
     
    Students can begin attending DCTS in 10th grade, with opportunities to earn industry certifications and college credits. There are also opportunities for co-op experiences where students apply the skills that they have gained in a professional setting. 

    Medical Careers Program   

    The Medical Careers program allows seniors to earn honors credit while spending one block each day learning and observing in a local hospital. While visitation days are not available for this program, the nurse instructor and current SHHS participants offer an information session at the high school each spring. For additional information or the supplemental application, please contact Ms. Smith, the district's DCTS liaison, in the counseling office. You can view a presentation on the program here: https://youtu.be/jolH5Q-f8tA

    Interested students may also want to research summer volunteer opportunities in local hospitals. See the summer opportunities page for more information.
