Eastwick Education provides students the opportunity to receive daily occupational training as part of their junior and/or senior year of high school. Academic subjects are taken at the “home” high school and students are transported to the shared time programs for specialized occupational/vocational training. The students are in attendance Monday – Friday from 11:30 am to 2:00 pm. All transportation is provided by the home district.

Academic Infusion Program
Each of the shared time programs features an integrated applied math and/or applied science component. Instruction is based on skills that have been identified as necessary for a success in a given vocational area. These are not comprehensive math or science courses, and are not designed to prepare for End-of-Course examinations or the High School Proficiency Tests.
Mathematics and/or science credits may be earned through the programs: however, it is up to the home district’s discretion as to how the credits will be applied.
Math or science components infused within the courses: Integrated Mathematics in the Workplace, Science Concepts in the Technical Trades, Medical Mathematics, and Anatomy & Physiology
