Advanced Course Fair 2022

Simley's Advanced Course Fair Provides Student Perspective on Classes
Posted on 02/16/2022
Certified Nursing Assistant studentSimley High School held an Advanced Course Fair this school year to provide a student perspective on the college and career courses available to Simley students. The idea for the Advanced Course Fair came from conversations with students. Students said they would be more likely to take advantage of a college or career class if they heard about it from another student. So each year, student representatives from each class set up a booth in the gym and freshmen, sophomores, and juniors visit to learn and ask questions about the class.

This year, students were able to showcase a variety of on- and off-campus classes that provide Simley students with opportunities to earn college credit, career experience, internships, and professional certifications before high school graduation. At the booths for TriDistrict Center for Advanced Professional Studies (CAPS) Program classes and the Genesys Works program, students talked to their peers about their opportunity to work alongside local employers, gain professional experience, and earn an internship. At the booths for Advanced Placement (AP) and concurrent enrollment classes, students talked about learning college-level material and earning college credit. At the booths for Simley’s Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) course and Emergency Medical Services (EMS) courses, students showed their peers the skills and medical equipment they learned to use in class and talked about the process of earning a nationally recognized professional certification. Thank you to all of the students who shared their experiences with their peers so even more students benefit from Simley’s ever-expanding catalog of college and career classes.
