What are Career Clusters?Career Clusters organize occupations and industries into 16 groups, or clusters, according to related skills and knowledge needed. The career clusters curriculum is designed to increase students' exposure to career information and opportunities through the creation of electronic Individual Graduation Plans (eIGPs).
South Carolina recognizes 16 career clusters ranging from Agriculture, Food & Natural Resources to Transportation, Distribution & Logistics. Learn more about a specific career cluster by using the drop down menu above or by downloading our Career Clusters Descriptions.
