     Apprenticeship Program 2017-2018 Applications are now being accepted!
    The Apprenticeship Program consists of 31 different programs from Acting to Zoo Animal Care.  Participating students will attend half-day or daylong learning experiences each month over a 6 or 7 month period during the school year.  The students will have opportunities to learn from and to work with professionals in each respective field.  The apprenticeship program is a great way for students to explore their career interests or to access learning opportunities not in the school curriculum.  Current 9th and 10th grade students are eligible to apply for a 2017-2018 apprenticeship program.  Applicants must create an account by going to http://apprenticeships.aiu3.net   After creating the account students will be able to submit an on-line application.  Applicants must also obtain a teacher recommendation (submitted on-line) and send a signed form and $75 application fee to the Allegheny Intermediate Unit.  Application deadline is May 26, 2017.  The AIU will send acceptance letters to the student's home address in early June.
     Questions about the apprenticeship programs or the application process may be directed to the NAI GOAL office until June 9, 2017.

    \SFX Trip

    Students who attended the Tolin FX GOAL Independent Option had a once in a lifetime experience in which they explored how Biology, Physics and Chemistry intersects with Art in the products created by Mr. Steve Tolin and his Special Effects production company.  Thanks go out to 9th grader Melina Bowser, who created this GOAL enrichment trip as part of a year-long GOAL Independent Project. 

    Congratulations to all of our GOAL Students who participated in the Mock Trial competition at Duquesne University!
