Post-Graduation Planning
It's never too early to begin planning for your future! The internet is an invaluable tool as you plan for post-graduation. Begin by researching college websites, career options or military service. Meet with your school counselor to ensure that your high school courses are aligned with the requirements for college admission, employment or enlistment.

Below are some helpful websites:


1. Request form must have a signature, or it will not be processed.
2. A copy of parent or student photo ID must accompany the request form.
