Vertical Alignment

From elementary through adult education, we are increasing career exploration and preparation for students. We will host another Middle School Career Fair for students in Napa county in Spring, we are creating new articulation agreements with Napa Valley College, and we are building connections with the adult school. 

We are the Napa County Office of Education College and Career Readiness Department working in partnership with Napa Valley Unified School District, Calistoga Joint Unified School District, and St. Helena Unified School District. We work with Career Technical Education (CTE) programs and support CTE work throughout the state. We provide access to career pathways, integrated curriculum, work-based learning, a variety of career exploration activities, and college planning tools.

Our vision is for a future where all students graduate high school with a better understanding of themselves and their career path, and are truly prepared to be successful in college, career, and life.


It's time to start.
