Solstice East Hosts Annual Career Fair
Solstice East, a residential treatment center for female and transgender students ages 14-17, hosted the annual Solstice East Career Fair.
The Solstice East academic team facilitated the annual 2021 Solstice East Career Fair this September for students to research and present their career interests. Each student was instructed to choose a career of interest and present their findings. Tables were set up in the gymnasium for students to present to each other. Each student created a poster board, designed professional pamphlets and flyers, researched salary ranges, and presented to interested parties. The career fair was similar to one you would see on a college campus.
The career fair proved to be opportunity-rich with fresh perspectives, sparking new interest in potential careers. The future is bright for students at Solstice East, as students demonstrated a variety of interests including veterinary science, animation, physics, and creative arts. Students were also able to teach staff about their career interests and pursuits.
Solstice East offers an on-campus college preparatory academy certified by the NC State Board of Education, fully accredited by Cognia and SEVIS certified. The teaching model is traditional, teacher-led with small class sizes. A full range of core classes, from special education to honors-level courses are offered to accommodate all grade 9-12 learning styles and levels.
