College and Career

Many people believe that “college” means four more years; in reality, college means any additional education or training after high school. Since 70% of jobs out there require some form of education and training after high school, it’s a good idea to get familiar with your options. Our school uses Xello programming to build individual student career and academic plans. See Ms. Joyce/Mrs. Van Zante to talk about post-secondary options or view descriptions at
