Career Center

Killingly High School is committed to providing quality Career Education in a wide variety of occupational sectors. Career-Technical education, funded with a combination of district resources, federal Perkins Grant funding and the Learning for Life Fund. Killingly is unique in our ability to offer all the academic courses, athletic opportunities and extra curricular clubs and activities of a comprehensive public high school, while offering exemplary career-technical education and vocational education typically found in a magnet school setting. Our focus on developing career-ready graduates includes a Career Pathway program with 29 pathway options. 

Killingly's four-year curriculum in Career Education 

  •  Freshmen are introduced to Career Education through presentations representing a diverse array of professions and vocations.
  • Sophomores investigate career options through a series of in-school Career Presentations provided by a wide cross-section of the business and professional community from throughout the region.
  • Juniors explore specific careers of their interest through interacting with the business community on Career Day, individually scheduled Job Shadow experiences in work place environments and career specific field trips to a variety of occupational sites.  A completed Job Shadow is a Performance Graduation Requirement (PGR) for all KHS students, and a Job Shadow completed in individual pathways are required for Pathway Completion. 
  • With the help of Guidance and Career Counselors, Seniors identify a career path and the college, military or industry training program that will best prepare them to reach their career goal.
