Post-High School Education

Think postsecondary education is limited to college degree programs? Think again! There are occupational certificate programs, adult education programs, job training programs, and new models of comprehensive postsecondary transition programs!

Which school and which program is the best fit for your teen? What steps should s/he take in each year of high school to prepare for postsecondary education?

Tools in this section will help you and your teen research postsecondary options and take steps to prepare for education after high school.
