Career Initiatives Program

Through unique partnerships and more strategic elective offerings, Purcell Marian is paving the way toward successful career paths and better earning potential right out of high school.

The new Cavalier Career Initiatives Program (CCIP) is focused on the areas of:

  • Construction Management
  • Healthcare
  • Information Technology
  • Green Technology including Environmental Studies
  • Horticulture and Forestry
  • Pre-Education/Teaching

Partners to date include Cincinnati State University, Halpin Plumbing, National Heating and Cooling, National Trade Academy, and Northern Kentucky University.

The program exposed students to career-related studies, thereby propelling them further down the path to self-actualization and personal fulfillment in a way that enriches their four years in high school and adds value to their studies.

The CCIP will include elective class options, field experiences, project-based work with partner organizations, summer internships, instruction from experts in various career pathways, and a four-year portfolio sequence that will positively impact all students.

"We are redefining the educational experience for Purcell Marian students. The Cavalier Career Initiatives Program is designed for students to explore areas of potential future employment in a variety of different fields. We believe in the creative capabilities and intellectual prowess of our students.”
-Chris Wilke, Director of the Cavalier Career Initiatives Program
