Career Clusters

Career Clusters arrange occupations and industries into 16 broad categories according to related skills and knowledge requirements.

In South Carolina, curriculum, instruction and student experiences are organized according to cluster, providing real-world relevance and pathways to college and career success. Eighth grade students, with help from parents or parental designees and school counselors and career specialists, create an Individual Graduation Plan (IGP) selecting career clusters and outlining courses for graduation and successful transition to postsecondary education or the workforce.
