What is ROP?

Regional Occupation Program (ROP) is a career and technical education provider that prepares high school students for a wide range of careers and further educational opportunities. The ROP course of study combines classroom instruction with hands-on learning; ROP teachers are fully credentialed and experienced in their related industries.

Why Take ROP Classes?

Many of the courses offered through ROP allow students to get a head start on college, and students earn grades and credits toward high school graduation. Not only do the classes cover necessary prerequisite information, but they also give students an insight into what these careers actually entail. Knowing this can help them make wiser college, major, and career choices in the years to come.
