Students and parents were able to speak with Penta instructors and students, meet Penta alumni, and discuss career opportunities with representatives from business and industry.

Penta offers 27 career-technical training programs for high school students during their junior and senior years of high school at the school’s main campus. In addition, Penta offers a year-long Sophomore Exploratory program for students who are interested in exploring career-technical fields during 10th grade.
