WCS students have great opportunities to explore career options through the SABA program. This program is designed to help students in grades 7-12 make a successful transition from school to work and to increase their employability skills. Through partnerships with local employers, SABA gives students the opportunity to learn about the world of work and explore different career options.
In October, a SABA Career Day is held annually at Utica School of Commerce. Students from the Waterville freshmen class participate in the career day. Each student has the opportunity to participate in four different career presentations.
Twelfth grade students enrolled in the fall or spring semester of Government and Economics classes at Waterville spend a day in November or March job shadowing at area employers.
Seniors represent Waterville High School at the Breakfast Celebration held annually in December. Students made some important connections with employers and had the opportunity to learn about the local job market and employment opportunities in the Mohawk Valley.
Ninth grade students will be given the opportunity to tour two local colleges in early May. The students will spend a half day touring a two year and a four year college.
