Black River Career Prep High School

Now Enrolling for 2021-2022

If you can picture yourself in a skilled job right out of high school, or attending college, Career Prep of Elyria can get you there. Our school offers flexibility in both scheduling and training to match how you learn best.

Business, Finance, and Marketing

What do you want from life after you earn your high school diploma? Did you know that many in-demand jobs require only an additional credential where the average salary is over $25/hr?! We can help you prepare for life and find a career that fits your ideal lifestyle! That’s why we offer chances to learn about Business, Finance, and Marketing. We even help you earn certifications in these areas free of charge and as part of your regular coursework. Why only earn a diploma when we can help set you up for life?!

If it does, our Entrepreneurship Academy will provide you with the tools you need to make this dream come true! The Academy is a brand new and exciting program that can be part of your regular coursework. Whether you already have a side-hustle or have an excellent business idea, The Academy is the perfect program for you. Join us and be ready for life after your diploma!

Professional Skills

Business owners across the United States have similar answers when asked what they look for in new workers. Does it surprise you to know that it is rarely expertise in their specific field of work? Usually, businesses desire skills in communication, problem-solving, self-management, and commonly used software. These skills are widely known as “soft skills” and are the foundation of any successful career and lifestyle. With Career Prep, you can master these skills through electives and without spending any extra time in class.
