Who are we?

- A group of professionals who meet monthly in an effort to find ways to better prepare our students for rewarding careers.

Our mission:

The Career Advisory Council will actively engage the engineering and design community and the community at large so that students of Samueli Academy are better prepared for careers and educational opportunities that fuse creativity with more technical concepts from subjects like math and science.

Mission goals will be accomplished in many different ways, including providing assistance, professional advice and critique. The Council will assist with community member recruitment, resource development, securing work based learning opportunities such as job shadowing, unpaid and paid internships, organizing and assisting student career related events, field trips, establishing college credit opportunities, scholarships, providing student mentoring as well as professional networking.

What does the Council do?

  • Career field trips
