The Destinations Career Program
Your student can prepare for college and career with the Destinations Career Program at Insight PA Cyber Charter School (ISPA).
What is Destinations?
Destinations gives students exposure to relevant skills from career courses built around three career fields, allowing them to explore occupations of interest. These engaging, content-rich courses expand the traditional education experience and maximize a student’s ability to succeed in the community and workforce. Successful completion of these courses may help students prepare for industry certification tests after graduation.*
Courses are based on the knowledge and skills required for each career pathway in the following in-demand career fields:
- Business, Management, and Administration: Careers in planning, organizing, directing, and evaluating business functions essential to efficient and productive business operations. Learn more about Business, Management, and Administration.
- Health Science: Careers in planning, managing, and providing therapeutic services, diagnostic services, health informatics, support services, and biotechnology research and development. Learn more about Health Science.
- Information Technology (IT): Building linkages in IT occupations for entry level, technical, and professional careers related to the design, development, support, and management of hardware, software, multimedia, and systems integration services. Learn more about Information Technology.
*Please note: Only students who participate in The Destinations Career Program for at least two years will have enough exposure to career courseworks to be best prepared for certification testing. Microsoft Office certifications may be earned as early as after one semester.
