Welcome to the Center for Career Services

Education and career training is what students will get when they come to the Center for Career Services in Valhalla. The center offers classes in a variety of career and technical disciplines for students who are interested in developing skills that will lead to a rewarding high-demand career and college. 

Our Career and Technical students master job skills in specific "cluster" areas, and they can choose one- or two-year programs. All eligible students who successfully complete our New York State approved CTE program receive academic and career and technical credits and are eligible for college credits through specific college articulation agreements with our Career and Technical programs.
