It is broadly said around the nation that the goal of high school is to ensure all students graduate "college and career ready." What does "College and Career Ready" mean? Simply put, college and career ready programs are designed to ensure high school graduates have the content knowledge, skills, habits and dispositions in multiple subjects to be successful in their future endeavors, after high school.
To be successful after high school, all graduates must possess a range of content knowledge, abilities and motivation to succeed that can only come from a rigorous, rich, and well- rounded Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 12 education. Nationwide, it has become expected that high school graduates need to continue their education in a postsecondary course of study, program or training series if they are to have options and opportunities in the current job market.
