Cooperative Education and Community Classroom Programs

Welcome to the Career Preparation Center's website for Holland High School. The Career Prep Center is responsible for managing the Holland High School Cooperative Education and Community Classroom work-study programs. Work-study programs are designed to give students the opportunity to earn high school credit for learning job skills within a planned program. It is hoped that this site will provide you with all the information you will need while inquiring about a work study placement or to answer the questions of the students, parents of a student, or student employers who are currently involved in a work-study placement.  

Specific information about the Cooperative Education and Community Classroom programs, downloadable applications for entry, and required assignment downloads are available by clicking on the appropriate link to the left side of this page under the Career Prep Office tab.
