Vocational Electives and Work Ethic
A key component of a Monarch education, the hands-on experience of vocational learning serves to develop a positive work ethic, practice problem solving and planning skills, and raise self-esteem. Students focus on one vocation for each fourteen-week class and work for three-hour blocks, three times per week. Skilled professionals visit campus to broaden the vocational experience. After a student completes the vocational cycle, he or she may repeat the vocation of his or her choice as a mentor or study another vocation. In addition, many older students participate in community service outside of Monarch School or job shadow in the local community.
