OC Pathways sets up path to college and career through partnerships in Orange County and beyond

OC Pathways focuses on getting students onto a path or college or career. This comprehensive partnership with the K12 schools and community colleges, leverages local business relationships and uses Nepris to connect with businesses outside the region. The program is active and vibrant. We have several teachers, site-based leaders, administrators and businesses ready and willing to be interviewed. The COE is highly organized and motivated to tell their story.



About OC Pathways OC Pathways connects educators and industry leaders to equip students for college and career success. Partners develop coursework that combines rigorous academics with career preparation in such target sectors as health care/biotechnology, engineering/advanced manufacturing and information and communication technology/digital media. This countywide project also creates workbased learning opportunities for students and empowers educators with 21st-century learning strategies. Led by the Orange County Department of Education and Saddleback College, OC Pathways was initiated through a 2014 grant from the California Department of Education. The collaborative now comprises 14 school districts, nine community colleges, multiple universities, numerous regional agencies and scores of industry and community partners working together to prepare Orange County students for high-demand, high-skill and high-wage careers.
