College and Career Information

High school graduation is not the end of our students' education; it is just the beginning. The jobs of the future will require further learning after high school, and we want students to be prepared for the pathway that they choose. Highline is intentionally focusing beyond high school graduation, to prepare students to successfully complete some form of education after high school. All of our students will have a career in the future, and most of them will need some college to get there - technical training, a 2-year degree program, a 4-year degree program or beyond.  All are good options!

Has your child started thinking about his or her future?  It's never to early to start thinking about college and a future career!  Here are some helpful websites to get students started thinking and to help students find information on specific colleges and careers.
