College & Career

To prepare students for life after high school, we offer a post-secondary program that helps students identify their goals after graduation – employment, college or military service – and helps them get there.

We also offer programs with St. Augustine College, Rasmussen College and City Colleges of Chicago for students to earn college credit while in high school. We have post-secondary counselors who help students write resumes and cover letters and complete job applications; research their future careers and anticipate the impact a career can have on all aspects of their life; and research colleges, complete an application for Free Application for Federal Students Aid (FAFSA), and apply for scholarships.

We offer certificate programs in CNC (computer numeric controlled heavy machinery) operation and A+ Certification for entry-level computer service professionals through our partnership with City Colleges of Chicago.

Students may also participate in paid construction internships through Ameri-I-Can and receive job placement assistance from Youth Job Center. We also offer college and career fairs, field trips, college campus tours and guest speakers to help students explore options for life after graduation.
