Current graduating seniors from the following school districts are eligible to apply:

  • Lucerne Valley Unified
  • Silver Valley Unified
  • Snowline Joint Unified

Other eligibility requirements are that the senior must have earned a course grade average of 3.0 or better throughout their pathway and have a Gmail account to complete the application.

CTE courses are available at the above nine school districts that make up the Mountain Desert Career Pathways district.

High school students can take courses that lead to careers in agriculture, construction, energy, engineering, media, business, education, fashion, health, tourism, information technology, manufacturing, marketing, public service and transportation.

Mountain Desert Career Pathways provides additional resources while students complete their coursework.

Most recently, the agency connected CTE construction students from Apple Valley and Sultana High Schools with DMB Development for a tour of the master-planned Silverwood community. 

The project is expected to bring more than $7 billion in capital to the region including infrastructure investments over the next 25 years. Once completed, the community will have 15,000 homes.
