College Process / Post High School and Transition Planning

Student Success Planning is process to help students understand their strengths, talents, and interests, and develop their post high school goals by collaborating with their school counselor, teachers, monitor, advisor or mentor, as well as their parents / guardians. Student Success Planning begins in the 6th grade and continues through 12th grade. It is designed to help every student actively plan for their future, and to achieve their post high school educational and career goals. Each student is provided assistance in setting goals for personal, interpersonal and academic growth, meeting rigorous learning expectations in the classroom, and exploring post high school education and career interests.
