Welcome to the Career Readiness Program at Raisbeck Aviation High School. Here, you’ll see that education grows beyond the classroom! As the only college preparatory, aviation-themed high school in the Pacific Northwest, Raisbeck Aviation High School is all about Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM).
Our Career Readiness Program offers students many opportunities to prepare for futures in the aviation and aerospace industries. We also offer adults valuable opportunities to guide and enrich both their lives and the lives of our students through our Mentoring and Internship programs.
With the generous start-up grant from the Paul G. Allen Family Foundation and continuing support from the Office of Career & College, RAHS students have access to a range of additional opportunities, both in and out of the classroom, to help prepare them for careers.
- 9th graders participate in Aviation Careers, a semester-long course to understand careers in the aviation and aerospace industries. They learn networking, participate in job fairs, and shadow professionals at SeaTac International Airport and the Federal Aviation Administration.
- 10th graders connect with industry professionals who volunteer as mentors, helping students clarify goals, establish timelines, network, etc.
- 10th & 11th graders are encouraged to participate in industry internships.
- 12th graders tie the pieces together in their senior project, 13th year & beyond plan, or both.
