Career Development and Service Learning
Upper Arlington's Career Development Program provides experiences for students to learn about their education and career options a variety of programs and experiences such as:
integrated career awareness activities at the elementary level
career development activities through Life Skills classes at the middle school level
job shadowing for 8th and 9th graders
Focus on Your Future career event for sophomores
individual counseling through the guidance staff at UAHS
For Upper Arlington students who would like to explore different career areas as part of the high school day, we encourage 11th and 12th graders to access Columbus City Schools' Career Technical Education at Fort Hayes and the Columbus Downtown High School & Career Center.
Service learning supports the mission of the district by providing engaging and relevant learning experiences. These authentic experiences meet real community needs, have strong ties to the curriculum, and include meaningful preparation and reflection.
