We’re Here to Help You Imagine Your Possibilities...even after high school...
Blue River Career Programs provides vocational skill training and career exploration opportunities for students from the five high schools in Shelby County. Students attend vocational programs for half of their school day and attend classes at their home high school for the other half of the day.
Most programs have articulation agreements with universities that allow students to receive college credit or advanced placement for successfully completing their vocational experience. Credit, as well as accepting universities, varies among programs. College Cooperative SE (CCS) is our in-house college connection for Shelby County.
