College Ready
Our teachers provide an education that contains the essential components of a college-readiness program. These are cognitive strategies, content knowledge, self-management skills, and knowledge about postsecondary education.

Colleges expect their students to be able to
  • formulate academic investigations
  • propose solutions to nonroutine problems
  • evaluate the credibility and utility of source material
  • integrate sources into a paper or project appropriately

Additionally, colleges want incoming students to possess critical thinking skills, enabling them to compare and contrast differing philosophies, methods, and positions to understand an issue or concept.

Students are urged to keep in contact with the Counseling Office often to ensure they are on track so they have options when it comes to choosing a postsecondary school.  Counselors can provide guidance on:

  • Meeting deadlines 
  • Scheduling admission exams 
  • Choosing a college
  • Completing college applications 
  • Financial aid options
  • Adjusting to college life
  • Choosing a major based on interests
Career Ready
Career readiness involves three major skill areas:
  • Core Academic Skills and the ability to apply those skills to concrete situations in order to function in the workplace and in routine daily activities
  • Employability Skills, such as critical thinking and responsibility, that are essential in any career area
  • Technical, Job-Specific Skills related to a specific career pathway

These skills have been emphasized across numerous pieces of research and allow students to enter true career pathways that offer family-sustaining wages and opportunities for advancement.
