    Apprenticeship: Earn while you Learn 

    AACPS students have the opportunity to do just that by participating in a high school apprenticeship. The apprenticeship program integrates high school curriculum, career and technology training, and essential on-the-job experience at local businesses. Students can earn a paycheck through part-time work while obtaining an industry-recognized certification. Anne Arundel County's business and industry require skilled workers, and high school apprenticeships are instrumental in constructing a robust talent pipeline for the future.
