College & Career Readiness

Research shows that when students receive college and career counseling, they are more motivated, and are more likely to improve decision-making, goal setting, and career planning skills. Collaboration with the Division of Career and Technical Education and the Division of Higher Education, and other stakeholders ensures that all students have the opportunities and skills necessary for college and career readiness.
