What is the Linked Learning Approach?

Linked Learning is a proven approach to education that combines college-focused academics, work-based learning and integrated student supports. By centering high school around industry themes, learning becomes relevant. Students graduate with the skills and confidence to succeed in college, career and life.

Linked Learning Approach

Students learn through a pathway connected to a local industry sector.

Each Pathway is grounded in a set of four guiding principles.

  • Rigorous academics, aligned to admissions requirements for state colleges and universities.
  • Career technical education, delivering concrete knowledge and skills through a carefully structured sequence of courses.
  • Work-based learning, providing students with exposure to real-world workplaces through guest speakers,  job shadowing, mentorships, internships, and more.
  • Integrated Student Support services, including counseling and supplemental instruction in reading, writing, and math to address the individual needs.
