    The Cooperative Education Program or Capstone Program is a structured method of instruction combining school-based classroom learning with productive work-based learning, matching the student-learner’s academic and career objectives. This involves a planned partnership with specified connecting activities and responsibilities among students, parents, schools and employers.

    Eligible seniors may participate in the Cooperative Education Program, which is a paid work experience. In some cases, qualified juniors may be considered for participation during the final marking period of their junior year. To be released from school, the student must work a minimum of 15 hours during the school week in a position related to the student’s career objective.

    Warren County Career Center programs are monitored by a certified Cooperative Education Instructor who ensures that the students and employers are following the guidelines of the program.
