Career Center Enrollment ProcessEnrollment for fall begins in March of the previous school year.
Enrollment in the Jackson Area Career Center begins with your local high school counselor, who can determine if the Career Center's programming will fit within a student's schedule.To enroll, students must have enough credits to qualify as a junior and/or are on track to graduate on time. There is also an age cap consideration, and enrolled students can not turn 20 on or before the first day of school (those that are over the age cap can seek Adult Enrichment options.)The Jackson Area Career Center does not offer full-day programming, and participating students must choose either the morning or afternoon session.
