More Opportunities for Students
In addition to the courses offered at GCI, students also have access to the following opportunities:

Articulation (College Credit) and Certifications
The Genesee Career Institute is able to help students make the successful transition from high school to college or work by offering college credit and industry standard certifications. To receive college credit or test for certifications, a Genesee Career Institute student will need good grades, good attendance, and the ability to pass state standardized assessments. Students earning college credit can save tuition costs, shorten the time they spend in college, and reduce the duplication of courses. High school academic credit is also available.

Students Organizations
The Genesee Career Institute encourages participation in student organizations including Business Professionals of America (BPA), Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA), Distributive Education Club of America (DECA), Skills USA, and National Technical Honor Society (NTHS). Student organizations are unique because the activities and competitions relate directly to what students are taught in their program area. Students further develop technical skills and build leadership qualities.

Curriculum Enrichment
Students at the Genesee Career Institute have many opportunities, in addition to classroom instruction. They can also explore and learn more about their program area, the world of work, and higher education. Some examples of those activities include:
  • Field trips to businesses related to career area
  • College field trips
  • Guest lectures from area professionals
  • Volunteer projects with many local agencies
The Genesee Career Institute provides many opportunities for students to become active, vital members of the community.
