Life after high school – the path is different for everyone

Every child is unique, with unique talents, passions and skills. And as each child grows up, he or she begins thinking about independence and the future.

As a parent, you can help guide your children toward a meaningful career. William Shakespeare wrote that “all things are ready, if our minds be so.”

Some high schools even offer career academies that provide courses for specific occupations.
