Students interested in the construction industry have an opportunity to take part in hands-on learning in the field of construction. MNCAPS students will be able to take advantage of Prior Lake High School's expanded Industrial Technology wing that offers learning experiences to prepare them for a profession in the trades. The Trades Pathway is enhanced through guest instruction where industry leaders will mentor students and offer on-site experiential learning. The Pathway will culminate with a large-scale construction project.
Students in the Trades Pathway will acquire high school credits, and college credits earned from Dakota County Technical College (DCTC), to allow students to seamlessly transition to the Construction Management program at DCTC after high school.
