Career Pathways


Post Secondary Partnerships – Advanced Technical & Dual Credit


Mabank High School provides statewide Advanced Technical Credit (ACT) and dual credit opportunities for students enrolled in qualifying Career and Technical courses. By enrolling in MHS's ATC "articulated" courses and/or dual credit classes, students pursuing a technical career have the opportunity to receive college credit. Advanced Technical Credit earned can be applied toward the appropriate AAS degree or Certificate of Completion once students have met all other requirements outlined by ATC. Dual credit earned can be applied toward an appropriate AAS, Certificate of Completion or bachelor's degree. The goal of articulated credit and dual credit is to eliminate the need for duplicate training sessions in high school and college, therby saving students both time and money, For addition information regarding the ATC process and steps required to receive the credit, please see:

Students receiving certification earn credentials that certify employability skills and provide an advantage in today’s workplace.  Students with certifications are able to apply for higher wage, part-time or full-time employment regardless if they are entering the workforce directly out of high school or if they are college bound.  Many of the certifications serve as building blocks to post-secondary education and may decrease the number of remedial or introductory courses required for a post-secondary degree.


 At Mabank High School, industry certifications are offered to students in most career clusters during a student’s junior or senior year. Just like dual credit, earning industry certifications in high school is more cost effective for students.  Certification fees apply, but are offered to students at a discounted rate.  Please see our Course Guide for additional information.
