College & Career Counseling:
High School students participate in the Colleges and Careers
Program designed to facilitate internships and community service
with the goal of enabling success during the transition from
high school to college or career.
In Colleges and Careers, our college counselor works closely
with students and their families in the college search process.
This begins in Freshman year and each year has its own goals.
Students research and explore different colleges and are
guided through the process from ACT prep to writing essays and
filling out applications.
For students who prefer to secure
employment before moving on to college, our counselor works with
them on job skills, from learning how to successfully interview to
leads on weekend and summer job opportunities.
All students share
in the learning process for job skills, essential skills that will
be helpful before and after college.
An integral component of Colleges and Careers is an
experientially-based high school program that lets students use
their multiple intelligences in core disciplines.
Students pick a
discipline they are passionate about such as photography, fashion
design, or computers, find a mentor/expert, do research, integrate
other academic disciplines, and then deliver a presentation.
students discover that one of these passions is what they'd like to
focus on in college or as a career; therefore, the passage serves
as a stepping stone from high school to adulthood.
