Our College & Career Center is located in the library complex in Room L5 across from the Bell Tower. Open from 7:30 a.m. until 3:45 p.m., students may explore college, ROP (Regional Occupational Center), scholarship/financial aid, career, employment and volunteer opportunities. In addition to reference books, study guides, catalogs and DVD's, there are 20 computers with internet access available for student use which link to our college/career development software, Naviance. This software promotes an interactive process of exploring possible occupations and schools.
Career and college planning may begin by taking interest and aptitude tests that connect with related occupations, majors and colleges. Representatives from colleges across the country visit our College & Career Center for lunchtime and after school presentations, typically during the months of September through December. Students may listen to guest speakers who visit during lunch to talk with interested students about specific careers. Students in all grade levels will spend one to three periods each year at the College & Career Center to explore career and college options.
Applications, registration booklets and forms are available for SAT & ACT tests, financial aid and NCAA. Information regarding scholarships, SAT prep courses and specialized summer programs are continually updated. Students interested in part-time employment may find job opportunities on the College & Career Center Job Board. Work Permit Request forms are obtained and processed through the College & Career Center.
Community volunteer programs and summer internships are also offered through the College & Career Center.
Our Career/College Specialist, Mrs. Castillou, is at the College & Career Center to assist students.
