We hope you will find this site to be a valuable resource during your high school career.

How We Can Help

The Career Planning Center provides students with opportunities and resources for educational planning and career exploration. Career and educational planning materials–including guidebooks, college catalogs, applications, and financial aid information–are located in the Career Center. We encourage students to visit the Career Center and meet with their career counselor for assistance in finding information and making decisions about future career planning options.
