MVROP & Career Technical Education

Mission Valley Regional Occupation Program (ROP) is a provider of career training for high tech, high pay and high demand fields. In existence for forty years, MVROP has been instrumental in preparing students for successful business, medical, and technical careers. Operating under a partnership with Fremont, New Haven, and Newark Unified School Districts, over 5,000 students (adult and high school) participate each year in ROP’s exemplary educational programs.

Mission Valley’s dedicated staff, superior learning environment, and high tech equipment all contribute to the high success rate of our students. Keeping current with today’s standards is critical, and we continually seek input from business and industry representatives who serve on active advisory committees for each of our programs. All ROP instructors bring with them experience in their field as well as certification by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing.

In addition, several ROP courses have articulation agreements with local community colleges.  Students who earn a grade of C or better, and have completed the necessary paperwork, are able to receive college credits for the course.

Career Technical Education

The California State Department of Education's definition of CTE is as follows: "Career technical education engages all students in a dynamic and seamless learning experience resulting in their mastery of the career and academic knowledge and skills necessary to become productive, contributing members of society". 

Irvington has a number of CTE programs and courses designed to meet these goals. These include CCA, ITA, and SHAPE. To learn more about these programs, visit their webpages, contact your counselor or the College/Career Center.
