Classes for Careers, College & Life!
Napa County Office of Education Regional Occupational Program (NCOE ROP) provides career technical education in multiple industry sectors to high school students. Students have the opportunity to take courses that prepare them for college and careers through hands-on instruction by bringing theory and practice together. This makes learning relevant and engaging. Many students use the skills developed in ROP to obtain employment while furthering their education or pursuing their career goals.
Successful ROP students receive a certificate of completion that informs employers of the skills the student has obtained through their hands-on educational experience. Students can earn academic credits or elective credits to meet graduation requirements. ROP courses also provide a solid foundation for a college education and many of the courses meet the University of California 'a-g' entrance requirements and/or articulate with Napa Valley College. Students who are interested in taking ROP courses should see their high school counsel.
Connected to Business and Industry
Each ROP course has an advisory committee comprised of representatives from the business community related to the industry pathway. Based on recommendations offered by the advisory committees, curriculum is modified to incorporate the latest techniques and equipment used in the work place. ROP instructors bring with them a minimum of five years experience in their field as well as certification by the California Commission on Teaching Credentialing.
