    Although 20% of today’s careers require a four-year college degree, 80% require technical education or training. About sixty percent of students from our local community attend a two-year college and then transfer to a four-year college.

    Two-year colleges and technical colleges do not require applicants to have followed a college prep program in high school, nor do they require applicants to take the SAT or ACT. However, challenging coursework is a consideration for admission, and most have an entrance exam requirement.

    College applications are due at varying times. Look at each university or college to familiarize you with timelines.

    We recommend visiting the web site of the university and college of your choice to schedule a visit on campuses before your senior year to get a "fit and feel" of each campus.  Search on the admissions page for video tours and actual tours.

    We would like to remind you that magic words such as hello, please, you’re welcome, I’m sorry, and thank you, all begin to be learned at home.

    Home is also where they learn to be organized, to take good care of their belongings, and that it’s not ok to touch others.

    Here at school, on the other hand, we teach language, math, history, geography, physics, sciences, and physical education.

    We only reinforce the education that children receive at home from their parents.

    We are a school of choice that caters to students in grades 11-12+ within the district, as well as its surrounding districts.

    The mission is to provide students with options toward graduation and earning their high school diploma.
