Specialty Programs

Specialty programs focus on career exploration, subject area concentration, and college/university preparation. Prince William County Public Schools provide excellent opportunities for students to explore a wide variety of special programs in our schools. These “specialty” programs give students the chance to investigate careers ranging from the various building trades to advanced computer science. Students participating in these programs can earn certifications, licenses, or other professional credentials in an area of study.

Parents and students interested in learning more about specific specialty programs are invited to attend the information night presentations held each year during fall and winter. Please refer to the calendar for specific dates and times.

Explore what each program has to offer by browsing this website or by looking over the downloadable brochures provided in each section.
