The Allied Health Pathway at East Hartford High School

Career Pathways

Advancing Academic Excellence & Career-Connected Learning

Thank you to all EHHS Allied Health pathway supporters, including key partners:

ReadyCT is supporting the  East Hartford High School Allied Health Pathway (EHHS AH) — a STEM-focused community igniting students’ passion for learning!

Students enrolled in the pathway have the opportunity to graduate high school with one or more industry-recognized credentials, including:

  • Certified Nursing Assistant
  • First Aid/CPR/AED
  • OSHA-10 Healthcare
  • Stop The Bleed
  • Suicide Prevention
  • Human Trafficking

Also, as part of the EHHS AH pathway, students receive year-round instruction in work readiness that helps them develop employability skills (e.g., time management, teamwork, work ethic, and communication skills). The curriculum also offers practical instruction in Microsoft Office, Google Workspace, financial literacy, and business writing.

The pathway experience will prepare students for work-based learning opportunities during high school, for career, for college, and for their long-term success! 

EHHS students are stellar. Be sure to check back to hear from these students as the school year progresses.
