Early Childhood Education We at Sterling High
School value Early Childhood Education. Our
Early Childhood Education program is designed to
give our students a solid background in a field
that is in great demand. It is our hope and an
integral part of the design of the program that
our students graduate with a minimum of 9 college
credits and a CDA certificate.
16
Community members are often invited in to work
with the kids. At left we have a demonstration
on dental hygiene given by one of our parents who
works in the industry

Multi Media Graphic Design The Multi Media
Graphic Design program at Sterling High School
will afford our students the opportunity to
become well versed in the requisite skills to
enter this growing field. According to the
American Institute of Graphic Arts, entry-level
designers had an average earning potential of
35,000 in 2007. The average earning potential
was 45,000 for staff-level graphic designers,
62,000 for senior designers and 98,600 for
design directors.
22
Students in the MMGD program will become will
versed in the foundations of studio art and
contemporary digital applications like Photoshop
and Illustrator. They will engage in real life
simulations that require them to negotiate with
clients, spec out jobs and complete products to
the satisfaction of the client. Below is a
sample of a digital mural produced by the MMGD
students for the Stratford Fire Hall.
