ReadyCT Helps our High School Students Prepare for Careers
Great news from ReadyCT, an HPS partner who collaborates with CBIA and our high schools to help get our students career-ready! On June 2, 2021, seniors from both Hartford Public High School and Pathways Academy of Design and Technology received their certificates of completion from Goodwin University’s Early College Advanced Manufacturing Program (ECAMP) . Each student will be graduating with 21 college credits.
There were originally 30 students who began the program last fall–some completed the first semester, but did not continue on to complete the entire program; nonetheless, they still received credit for the courses they took.

ReadyCT is committed to advancing academic excellence and career-connected learning for our students – pursues policy opportunities and education program delivery in support of student achievement, with a focus on low-income and minority students whose academic performance traditionally trails their more affluent peers. We continue to explore ways to close that gap while also reshaping the definition of success for all students in ways that keep pace with our modern world.
A passion for learning is sometimes ignited in places outside classrooms.
By connecting the classroom to the business world, students can learn in dynamic ways that position them for success. On the industry side, this helps to develop a Connecticut-grown workforce deep in skill, talent and diversity.
Details on the three career pathways supported by ReadyCT can be found with these links:
- Engineering & Green Technology @ Hartford Public High School
- Information Technology @ Pathways Academy
- Insurance & Finance @ Weaver High School
Our goal is to create a mutually rewarding school-business network – one where the business provides a full continuum of work-based learning experiences and the student provides value and work product to the business.
Career-connected learning allows students to see the connection between the classroom and the working world; it enables them to see the potential for their future.
