What is the High School Apprenticeship Program?

The High School Apprenticeship Program (HSAP) is an on-the-job, paid, work-experience credit for high school students. The purpose of an HSAP experience is to explore and/or pursue an apprenticeable trade.


Exploring trades is a necessary step for student to confirm whether or not they wish to pursue a skilled trade. Whether the student to pursue the trade or not, they have gained knowledge and skills to make their next career decision. A byproduct of this exploration is that students have gained practical trade skills and employability skills. Students have also had a place to practice their math and communication skills.
