Lockport High School currently has three New York State Education Department (NYSED) approved Career Pathway Academies, Business Management and Administration, Finance (with a focus in Real Estate and Insurance), and Engineering Technology. Students that are interested in one of these Academies will take 4.0 credits of approved classes in one content area. The advantages of being part of a Career Academy include taking courses during the regular school day at LHS (not at a BOCES site), earning a CTE endorsement in addition to your NYS diploma, graduating with a list of employability skills that are recognized by industry professionals, participating in an internship during your senior year, and having the opportunity to network with outside professionals that will help you with your career search and soft skills.
