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.”

The path to a career will be different for every student, but the early route is the same. Children need to work hard in school up until the day they graduate. Rigorous classes will prepare students for college, career and life.

After high school, there are limitless possibilities. Four-year universities are perfect for some students ( Community colleges are ideal for others. Certification programs nicely fit the bill for some careers. Apprenticeships are another way to explore the world of work – and get paid for learning. Internships are great for students – whether they’re in high school or college – who want to get a taste for an occupation. Some high schools even offer career academies that provide courses for specific occupations.
