Preparing Students for Technical Careers

Training at the Star Career Academy career schools is “performance-based”, using simulated work environments run by industry professionals. Graduates are equipped with the practical skills needed to meet the demands of intense workplaces in varying technical careers throughout the country.

Classroom and hands-on career training is capped by a rigorous externship in most programs. Students go on-site and experience “real time” employment requirements. By the conclusion of the externship, a student is job-ready and Star’s Career Services Advisors will assist the student in scheduling interviews at area facilities.

The atmosphere at Star Career Academy is professional, but also warm and friendly. Instructors and students work together in a setting similar to real workplaces. Teamwork and human relations skills are developed and students learn the professional and ethical standards required for employment in the field. Instructors and advisors are available to assist students with educational and personal problems, as Star Career Academy strives to have every student meet his or her career and life goals.
