Are you a junior or a senior who is not sure what career path to pursue after graduating? If so, the VHS guidance department has some upcoming programs that may interest you.

While the most common path for VHS graduates is applying to four-year schools, some of which are a great distance from Verona, perhaps you want to stay close in northern New Jersey in order to get an associate’s degree, or enter a certification program or start a career quickly after graduating.

On March 8, 16, and 22 the guidance department is running workshops for the Artistic Academy, Fortis, and Berkeley College to introduce their areas of study for juniors and seniors in the high school.

The Artistic Academy provides cosmetology certification (hair, skin, nails, barbering) which requires 1200 course hours, and is completed in 10 months for full time participation, and 18.5 months for part time. They also provide an aesthetics (skin care) certification which requires 600 course hours, and is completed in five months for full time participation and 9.5 months for part time. On March 16 at 1 p.m. Fortis will have a workshop to present their post-high school career path. Fortis provides certification programs for Laboratory Technician, Massage Therapy, Medical Billing and Coding, Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning & Refrigeration, Dental Assistant, Medical Assistant and Electrical System Technicians.

On March 22 at 1 p.m. Berkeley College will have a workshop to present their areas of study and degree programs. Berkeley provides a plethora of options from Certification Programs, Associate’s, Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees. Some include Accounting, Fashion Merchandising & Management, Criminal Justice, Graphic and Interior Design, Medical Assistant, Surgical Technology, Health Science, Nursing, and International Business. In order to attend the workshop, you must sing up before March 19. The google forms to sign up are posted below.
