At Skaneateles High School, students are encouraged to explore careers in any way possible....through parents and family friends, special programs and courses, and actual job shadowing that is arranged through school. The key: EXPLORE!! Test things out. Step out of a traditional school day. Talk to people in various careers. Think about your skills and interest. Imagine yourself in the future! 


Upstate Medical University will deliver two health career exposure events within the Syracuse City School District in the coming months, "Our Kids, Our Future."  The March 11th event at PSLA Fowler and the April 2nd event at Henniger will provide interactive activities for middle and high school students, childcare for younger sibilings, and informational sessions and panels for parents.  Our keynote speakers are both highly successful physicians and alumni of the Syracuse City Schools.

Thank you for considering and making a difference in our students' future career exploration!!
