What comes after high school? College, career, vocational training?
And if college is the choice, which one? When to apply? How to pay for it?
Ann Arbor Public Schools offers Counseling Outreach Programs throughout the year, which supplement the extensive support in the high schools.
In the video below, John Boshoven talks about these outreach programs, and Skyline High School advisor Cheryl Haller discusses the often complicated process of applying for college, as well as alternatives to college.
“My goal is to make sure all of our students are successful, and I’m looking at the end line,” says Haller. “I want to see students be rock stars—wherever they’re at.”
She says preparing students for life after college is a huge team effort of staff and students.
“Every single person here has a team of people that are helping them achieve their goals, and ultimately that makes for a better student,” she says. “And it also makes for a better culture within the building.”
