Our broad range of occupational and educational programs, coupled with employment services offer our students customized options whether pursuing a job or additional education.

Our Approach

CRY-ROP provides quality, hands-on career training programs in more than 40 high-demand career fields to assist high school students and adults in acquiring marketable job skills. Course content is validated by local business advisory committees, reflecting current industry standards, and approved by the ROP's Governing Board.

CRY-ROP works in collaboration with K12 school districts, adult education, community colleges, and workforce development.
