Professional Advisory Committee

The Professional Advisory Committee (PAC) at Harbor School is comprised of over sixty professionals from industry and higher education.  Members team up with our school’s CTE instructors to advise on curriculum and work-based learning opportunities, college programs, and career pathways.  The PAC meets annually in a General Session and, at least, one additional time in Sub Committees for each of the school’s six CTE programs of study.
