A World of New Opportunities for Students

Carly Mahoney's students at Cahuilla Desert Academy love learning about career clusters and future career opportunities.

Mahoney explains, "I am excited to be teaching my second year of College & Career Ready Labs. Paxton Patterson allows all students opportunities for hands-on exploration in a project-based learning environment. This innovative program fosters learning as students navigate their pathways. I am lucky to be their teacher and join the journey."


Students use creativity, communication, collaboration, critical thinking and time management skills that extend well beyond the walls of the classroom.
