College and Career Readiness

Being prepared for a college transition means more than just the admissions process. Beyond grades, great SAT or ACT scores, and the traditional college planning process, students who know their gifts, talents and challenges are often better prepared for their transition to college and throughout their college career. These skills and knowledge also prepare them to make decisions and create the experiences and opportunities needed to make the transition from college to career. Although high school students are not supposed to have all these answers now, a little self knowledge and preparation goes a long way to helping the student make the best decisions possible. Unfortunately, many students believe that they will figure all this out once they get to college and often find that this is not the case. While learning about a particular subject is helpful, classes alone do not generally provide all the information they will need for choosing a major. Especially in today's competitive job market and constantly changing economic climate, it has become more important than ever for students to create opportunities and experiences that will provide them with the information and experiences they need for for long-term career success.  Without this self knowledge, tools and skill development students can find themselves:
  • changing majors mutiple times
  • delaying graduation as much as several years
  • making poor major choices just so that they can graduate
  • needing additional education, experiences or training once they graduate to launch a career.
A little pre-preparation goes a long way.  Through the use of career assessments to help clarify a student's talents, strengths and potential challenges combined with exposure to the world of work, students gain the self knowledge, tools and decision making skills needed for thoughtful college and career planning.
