Be Prepared for Life After High School

You’ll graduate from Ombudsman Chicago prepared for life after high school, whether you plan to work, go to college or technical school, or serve in the military. Your Senior Portfolio is an important part of this preparation.

You’ll take a survey about your career interests, learn about careers that interest you, and complete your resume, job applications and cover letters to employers. You’ll also explore college options, research schools, fill out an application for Free Application for Federal Students Aid (FAFSA), and apply for scholarships.

Completing the Senior Portfolio meets a CPS graduation requirement and helps you plan for the future, no matter what your goals.
