College, Career & Community Readiness

Mission

We will collaborate with our community to reach our goal of ensuring all students are college, career and community ready and accomplish together what one organization cannot do alone.


Vision

Every student will be life ready, possessing the knowledge, skills and habits to pursue their academic and career goals.


Our Commitment

The College, Career and Community Readiness Department is committed to preparing students for our diverse world by connecting their everyday learning to meaningful real-world opportunities.
