Pathway Information

Career Pathways
McMinnville High School's Career Pathway program provides students a "road map" with information on what courses to take and when to take them as they pursue a career area.  Students clearly see the relationship between the courses available at MHS and the certificates or associate degrees that lead to careers in a specific industry.  McMinnville High School offers endorsements in many Career Pathways.  Students are required to earn 3.0 credits in pathway experiences through the extended list of pathway courses McMinnville High School offers.

Pathway Endorsements​
McMinnville High School students can also earn a Pathway Endorsement.  Completion of 2.5 credits of specific coursework within a designated pathway identifies the student as completing an endorsement.  Students with completed Pathway Endorsements earn a green cord at graduation and are eligible for a Pathway Scholarship within that pathway.
