We're here to help MPS students make a plan for life after graduation.
Our Career & College Centers (CCCs) in eleven MPS high schools help students chart their career course and make a plan for success after graduation—whether that means post-secondary school, apprenticeships, technical training, work or other opportunities. We also track individual student progress to ensure that every senior has a plan.
We're a highly-experienced team of career and college readiness professionals.
Our Career & College Center staff include licensed school counselors, teachers, and social workers. We bring extensive experience in helping students develop the best post-secondary plans for their individual career and life goals.
