The College Career Resource Center (CCRC) is available to our students to assist them in preparing for life after high school. Choosing a career path can be a difficult decision. When students have some idea of the type of career they are interested in, it helps determine a college major or what type of specialty or trade school would be required to accomplish their career goals.
The subjects at the left will help students work through the process of deciding on a career and/or a college. It provides the tools necessary to travel through the post-high school planning process.
