College & Career Readiness


Every student deserves to graduate from high school ready for post-secondary education or direct career entry. After all, what is the point of K-12 education, but to broaden students' minds and prepare them for a viable career that positively contributes to society? Given that most skilled jobs today require college, vo-tech, apprenticeship or certification, it is more important than ever that students receive adequate college and career readiness preparation.
