Greenwood Mennonite School

Career Training & Instruction 

Greenwood Mennonite School is pleased to offer an

opportunity for our high school students in the area of vocational 

training, the GMS Career Training and Instruction (CTI) 

Program. Our standard academic program has been intentionally 

designed to prepare students for college, and we have had much 

success in doing so. We understand, however, that a certain 

percentage of students desire to begin their careers when leaving 

high school with little or no further schooling, and we want to meet 

the needs of these students and families as well. 


In partnership with Penn Foster Career School, an online 

educational institution, and with local businesses. A student that chooses GMS CTI will be able to graduate with training as well as hands-on experience in their desired field. They may also be eligible for certification from Penn Foster, depending on the field chosen. 


A typical CTI student will complete one or more online courses 

during his or her 10th or 11th grade year. He or she will also 

work with a local business for several hours each week during the 

11th grade year. During his or her senior year, the student would 

be allowed to leave school early to work in that field and could 

receive credit for doing so along with the invaluable experience 

gained. Each student would, of course, still complete all needed 

courses at GMS to receive a standard High School Diploma. This 

will be considered an integral part of our curriculum and there will 

not be any additional charges to parents.


The courses listed on the left are available through Penn Foster, 

and we will do our best to arrange for appropriate field 

experience with local businesses. Several business have already 

expressed their desire to work with our students.
