A Signature is a 21st century workforce-relevant theme around which curricula, job shadowing, mentoring, co-curricular clubs, college courses, and internships are crafted. With a unique theme at each high school, Signature Programs are designed to excite, engage and prepare students for college and careers.

A Signature brings together educators with local business and community leaders to make classroom instruction relevant, interesting, and challenging for students with opportunities that connect to the 21st century workplace.
