Career Center

Welcome to the Bear Creek High School College & Career Center!
Mrs. Rocio Ochoa
(209) 953-8246

To further help our students develop plans for their future, the College and Career Center provides invaluable information about colleges, careers, scholarships, financial aid, college assessments, military, work permits, etc. Students are welcome to stop by on school days between 7:00am and 3:30pm.
Throughout the year, we provide information sessions with college admission representatives who present information and speak with our students about their post-secondary institutions.  These visits are a great opportunity for students to ask specific questions about the colleges they may be interested in, and find out more about those they may not be familiar with.  A schedule of speakers is posted in the career center.

Career Technical Education (CTE)

Hundreds of thousands of California  young people get their start each year in exciting and rewarding careers through secondary Career Technical Education (CTE) courses. Whether students plan to further their education in community colleges, technical schools, or four-year colleges and universities, receive on the job training, or pursue careers in the military, secondary Career Technical Education can be the first step in a pathway toward productive employment and citizenship.  

The mission of Career Technical Education is to help empower students for effective participation in an international economy as world-class workers and citizens. CTE programs are designed to contribute to the broad educational achievement of students, including basic skills such as reading, writing, and mathematics, as well as to their ability to work independently and as part of a team, think creatively and solve problems, and utilize technology.

For more information on Career Technical Education, visit the LUSD Technical Academy Website: or you may contact a school counselor

If you are between the ages of 14  to 17 and are working, you must obtain a "Statement of Intent to Employ Minor and Request for Work Permit" This form is available in the Registrars Office.  Work hours and regulations are also explained on this form. 
The Work Permit Request must be completely filled out and then brought to the Registrar's Office for processing.  This will usually take up to 2 days to process.  Once the Work Permit is complete, you must pick up your completed WORK PERMIT and submit it to your employer for their records.
