College & Career Readiness

College & Career Readiness

College & Career Readiness iconCollege & Career Readinesstitle

A College Ready student is an academically prepared student, ready for post secondary education or training without the need for remedial coursework. Whether you are pursuing a four-year degree or studying for a skilled trade license, being ready means having the reading, writing, mathematics, social, and cognitive skills to qualify for and succeed in the academic program of your choice.

A Career Ready student possesses both the necessary knowledge and technical skills needed for employment in  their desired career field. For example, a student who is ready to become a teacher not only possesses knowledge of education policy, but also possesses all required certifications required to become a teacher.

Ultimately, college and career readiness demands students know more than just content, but demonstrate that they know how to learn and build upon that content to solve problems. They must develop versatile communication skills, work collaboratively and work competitively in a school or work environment.
