Job Shadowing

Modesto City Schools has partnered with various local businesses to offer job shadowing opportunities. Job Shadowing is a type of on-the-job training that allows an interested student to follow and closely observe an employee at a particular business to see if it’s a career path the student may be interested in pursuing. 

If you are interested in this opportunity, please reach out to your Career Navigator.

What is Dual Enrollment?

Students ages 13-18 can get started in college before they're even done with high school. Dual Enrollment (DE) students have the $46 per unit tuition fee waived. There may be other fees associated with the class, such as material fees, parking permits, books, or health fees.

Complete Dual Enrollment Petition

Students will need a part-time petition, which has been updated into an Informed K12 digital format for documentation and data collection purposes. Career Navigators will be assisting with the forms after Assistant Principles have approved. The Informed K12 petition link is embedded in the instructions above, #3.

Please remind students to check MJC student email. Some, if not all communications from MJC, will be sent to the student email.
