Regional Occupational Programs

Ang Contra Costa County Department of Education also collaborates with Berkeley HS to offer a number of courses with a focus on career preparation.

CTE/ROP is the Contra Costa County Office of Education’s career training program designed for high school juniors and seniors. The goal of CTE/ROP is to help students gain knowledge and skills for future careers.

In addition to the skills developed for specific fields, each class helps students develop a résumé, review effective interviewing techniques and identify sources of employment.

CTE/ROP is an excellent way to prepare for college. If students are uncertain about their college major or career choice, CTE/ROP provides an opportunity to explore a career field. Students use the skills they develop in CTE/ROP to gain higher paying part-time work to help pay for college expenses.

Internships and hands-on experience provide students the opportunity to “try-out” career choices before investing time and money in college or post-secondary training.

The following courses are currently being offered at Berkeley High School:

ROP Advanced Digital Photo
ROP Computer Science
ROP Art of Video Production
ROP Environmental Science
ROP Biotechnology
ROP Community Service Professions
ROP Fire Science
