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!

Note to parents, guardians or community members:
Many of you do interesting things and represent a wide variety of careers spanning all occupations and industries. Could a student shadow you for a couple of hours someday? Or would you be willing to come talk with student(s) with interest in your career? This is not an immediate commitment, we will save your information for future possibilities! Thank you for considering and making a difference in our students' future career exploration!!
Please email Mr. Pete Chapman or Mrs. GiGi Michel if you would like to set something up.
