The NVUSD Career Readiness Office works with NVUSD schools and NCOE to provide students with career readiness programs and support needed to enter college, post-secondary training or immediate entry into the workforce. Examples include job preparation, career days, Naviance college planning, internships, job shadows and connecting the business community with classroom projects.

The areas of focus are:

  • Web-Based College & Career Readiness
  • Career Technical Education (CTE)
  • Work-Based Learning (job shadows, business tours & more!)
  • Classroom Engagement (guest speakers, project partners)
  • Employer & Community Engagement




The NCOE College and Career Readiness Department (NCOE CCRD) provides Career and Technical Education (CTE) in multiple industry sectors to high school students across 15 career pathways in NVUSD, Calistoga Joint USD, and St. Helena USD. These pathways are taught by credentialed teachers with industry experience, and many meet a UC ‘a-g’ requirement. Students have the opportunity to take courses that prepare them for college and career through hands-on instruction by bringing theory and practice together. Many students use the skills developed in CTE courses to obtain employment while furthering their education or pursuing their career goals.
