The College & Career Center is open from 7:30 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. Students may explore college, ROP (Regional Occupational Program), scholarships & financial aid, career, employment, and volunteer opportunities. In addition to reference books, study guides, and college catalogs, 40 computers with internet access are available for student use.

Career and college planning may begin with interest and aptitude tests that connect with related occupations, majors and schools. Guest speakers from colleges across the country typically visit between the months of September to December. Additionally career focused speakers, including representatives from the U.S. Military may also be scheduled. Students in all grade levels spend between two to four class periods each year in the College & Career Center to explore career and college options.

Applications, registration booklets and forms are available for the SAT & ACT tests, financial aid, NCAA and TOEFL. Information on available scholarships, SAT prep courses and specialized summer sessions are continually updated. Students interested in part time jobs may find job opportunities posted on the Career Center Job Board. Work permit applications are obtained and processed though the College & Career Center.

Community volunteer opportunities such as the popular 5/6th grade camp counselors programs and summer internships are also offered and coordinated through the College & Career Center.

After school peer tutoring is offered on Wednesdays after school. Students from The Peer Tutoring Club, CSF and others recommended by staff are available to assist students with homework and subject specific tutoring.
