College & Career Center

We work with students and their families throughout all four years to prepare for the next step, whether it be college or a professional career.

Overview

Our College & Career Center has information about post-BAA college and career opportunities. We help students and families manage the college admission and financial aid process. Students work closely with our College and Career Coordinator, Retention Specialist, and College Advising Corps members on their applications beginning in their junior year.

The College & Career Center is funded through a Federal Perkins Grant.
