Post High School Planning
Courses taken at Discovery School help prepare for future choices.
Most career opportunities in this century are in the technical areas. 2-year and techincal colleges provide training to prepare for a career in these areas. To attend a 2-year or technical college a high school diploma or GED is required for admission.
Unlike in the past, a high school diploma or GED is required to enlist in the military. The military, then, provides educational and career preparation opportunities.
4 Year Colleges
If you are interested in a career that requires a college degree, it is necessary to take certain classes in grades 9-12 that 4-year colleges require for admission. Your school counselor can help you plan for this.
On The Job/Apprenticeship
In high school there are opportunities for on the job training in some areas. Check with your school counselor for information on this. Some careers have on-the-job training or apprenticeships available after high school has been completed.
