ASCENT is a program that pays tuition for students to take a year of college courses at a community college after their senior year. If a student plans appropriately, they can complete that 5th year of High School with as much as two years of college paid for.
Post Secondary Planning
Each year, 9th - 12th grade, counseling staff work with students to explore post secondary options. Students build an individual plan through Naviance as they begin contemplating their future path in terms of:
- post-secondary studies
- career readiness
- military entrance
- gap year
