Welcome

 

The College & Career Center (CCC) is a place where students may come to find out about college visits, scholarships, job openings, field trips, and volunteer opportunities. We are here to provide information and guidance to help students navigate their post high school options. The Center provides many resources to meet the interests and needs of students, including career exploration, college planning, scholarships, college visits, volunteer/community service, and employment.
