Preparing for life after high school is more than just a one time event. District 49 uses the College in Colorado website to help students plan for whatever they want to do in life. This website is about more than just college and/or Colorado; it provides useful tools and information in regards to interests, abilities, skills, careers, post-secondary training and more. The district automatically creates College in Colorado accounts for students based on their district assigned student number beginning in the 6th grade for use with developing each student's Individual Career and Academic Plan (ICAP).
College Admission TestingAdmission to a 4-year college or university is usually requires taking either the ACT or SAT. Due to policy changes, SAT and ACT scores may need to be provided to colleges and other related organizations directly from the testing agencies. Juniors and Seniors should also see the Counseling portion of your individual high school's webpage for more financial aid information and opportunities.

Young Adult Job Fair
Here is a great opportunity for our high school students! The Pikes Peak Workforce Center is hosting a Young Adult Job Fair for Teens and Young adults, ages 16-24 years of age. Aren't looking for a job? That's okay; this is still a fabulous opportunity for you to get out there and start networking and gain insight into what you can do to improve your career opportunities in the future. You can become familiar with what a job fair entails, make professional connections, see what employers are looking for, and practice for what is yet to come. I highly encourage each of you to check this out. If you have any questions please feel free to drop by the counseling office.
