Career Education

The Career Education program at Fair Lawn High School offers students the opportunity to choose from a rich cross-section of elective classes from three different areas: Engineering &Tech Education, Business Education & Family and Consumer Sciences.

Our Engineering & Tech Education electives can prepare students for careers in the areas of building trades, technology, engineering, and drafting.

Our Business Education electives are divided into two pathways, including a computer technology focus as well as an entrepreneurship focus.  Management & Strategic Planning can serve as a capstone course for seniors interested in furthering their studies in business.

Our Family & Consumer Science electives can prepare students for careers in education, counseling, and the culinary arts.  In addition to courses in food preparation and fashion design, we offer a unique child care course for seniors which provides them with the opportunity to work with Fair Lawn pre-school students.

Through partnerships with Bergen Community College & Fairleigh Dickenson University, students can earn college credit for some of these courses.  Speak to your guidance counselor for more information.
