About Us

In the Slate Valley, learning takes place both in and outside of the classroom. The Work Based Learning (WBL) program at Fair Haven Union High School (FHUHS) provides students with a unique opportunity to develop basic work skills as well as gain competence in a chosen occupational field that relates to their career goals.

"Our Work Based Learning program allows our students to participate and earn academic credit, explore career paths and earn real work experience before they leave high school,” said Kim Ransom, Work Based Learning Coordinator. “Students have the chance to explore interests in ways outside the classroom setting and gain skills that may actually be useful in the workplace."

As part of the Work Based Learning program, local businesses provide students with learning experiences in our community. Because of these businesses, FHUHS is able to provide students with a new model of education that supports career and college readiness. 

“One of our students is gaining real world, hands-on experience, for a position she will attain after attending a four-year college,” said Ransom. “She absolutely loves that she has chosen her field of study and can see the big picture of her future in many years to come.”
