On Wednesday, the Little Rock School District announced an initiative to expose high school students to different careers by adding classes in the fields of health care, technology, teaching and construction.

This Excel Careers for Advanced Professional Studies program offers high school juniors and seniors courses in these careers — along with a revived law enforcement program — while earning industry certificates and college hours as well as high school graduation credits. The courses give students the chance to immerse themselves in particular fields and the opportunity to learn by doing.
