School to Career Program
The Chester Education Foundation operates a year-long School to Career program. Rising 10th to 12th graders who attend either Chester High School or Science and Discovery/Health Careers High School are matched with local employers who will provide the students with paid, part-time jobs. In addition, students are given year round academic support. The screening process to determine eligibility takes place during late June. Interested students are encouraged to download and complete the application and to provide supporting documents below as soon as possible. For questions, contact Elaine Greene-Upton.
